Dear Fellow Workers...
In honor and recognition of state employees, I join all North Carolinians in celebrating your contributions and service by proclaiming May 3 –9, 2009 as “State Employee Recognition Week,” and May 6 as “State Employee Appreciation Day.”
No work offers more opportunity to make a positive impact in the lives of our fellow citizens than state government service does. No workers have more passion, dedication and commitment than North Carolina state employees. The standards of excellence and quality service that you provide to our citizens everyday help to make North Carolina great. I am very proud of your service and sacrifice.
