Governor recognizes State employees for their public service
Denver — Governor Jared Polis and Department of Personnel & Administration Deputy Executive Director, Tobin Follenweider recognized 20 state employees for their superior service to the people of Colorado. The lunch at the Governor’s Mansion on Tuesday, May 7, 2019 was part of Public Service Recognition Week, for which the first full week of May each year is designated by Congress and the Governor to honor public employees and to educate the public about the many ways government workers make life better for all Americans.
To celebrate the important contributions of our State employees, the Governor’s Office and the Colorado Department of Personnel & Administration (DPA) asked each State executive branch agency to select a single employee who most exemplifies the significant and invaluable contributions public servants make to the quality of life in our State. Honorees were selected for regularly demonstrating bold, consistent, and joyous service to the people of Colorado with no unforced errors.
