Today, Governor Laura Kelly declared May 5-11 as Public Service Recognition Week. This special week is dedicated to honoring public servants from all tiers of government who enhance the living standards in communities throughout Kansas.

“Kansas’ public service workers, no matter their job title, are vital to the state’s functioning, the amenities we enjoy, and the services we use daily,” Governor Laura Kelly said. “Thanks to all of you for the tremendous impact you make on our communities, the lives of our visitors, and those who call Kansas home.”

Throughout the week, Governor Kelly, Secretary of Administration Adam Proffitt, and leaders from various agencies will be touring state offices to honor the dedication and efforts of state employees.

“It is an honor to join Governor Kelly in recognizing these individuals who dedicate their professional lives to serving the state of Kansas,” Secretary of Administration Adam Proffitt said. “I see the work that is being done every day to better the lives of Kansans, and it does not go unnoticed. Thank you.”
