23rd June is UN Public Service Day

I want to send my congratulations to you for the work you do everyday.  There is no more honorable profession than working as a citizen for the benefit of other citizens. When profit maximisation govern the provision of public services, broader social and environmental sustainability objectives are no longer achievable.  Public resources become endangered, transparency and scrutiny are weakened and the overall economic and social costs to the community rise.  We need to ensure every citizen whether corporate or individual pay their fair share so that governments use this revenue to drive public sector growth through investment in universal, quality public services.  More on the United Nations Public Service Day
