HUDSON, OH (May 8, 2020) – This week, Mayor Craig Shubert issued a proclamation honoring public employees during Public Service Recognition Week, May 3 – 9. “Day in and day out, public servants provide the diverse services demanded by the American people of their government with efficiency and integrity,” the Mayor’s Proclamation states.
In today’s unprecedented pandemic, the talent, flexibility and dedication of City of Hudson employees have kept vital services going while the State of Ohio and America virtually shut down.
With 63% of City employees having more than 10 years of service and 24.5 % serving our community for more than 20 years, that tenure of knowledge and expertise has been critical during this time of crisis. As a result of the sudden closure of government offices forcing staff to work remotely, City employees worked together as a team to ensure daily projects, such as safety services, roads, storm water, electric and water, moved forward without interruption.
Members of our safety forces willingly put themselves on the front lines of this pandemic, risking exposure to themselves and their families. Our volunteer Fire Department and EMS employees continued to report to work, and our service personnel worked out in the public on infrastructure and kept water, internet, and electricity flowing.
“We have always valued the knowledge and commitment our City employees give to the Hudson community,” said Jane Howington, Hudson City Manager. “It became even more invaluable during this crisis as employees willingly assumed duties outside of their normal scope of responsibilities. It was incredible to see such teamwork and desire to serve the citizens of Hudson. I’m immensely proud of each and every City of Hudson employee who stepped up to keep our City running.”
Government workers are doing important work that positively affects all of us every day, and these services are necessary to tackle the challenges our nation is facing in the time of coronavirus. We want to thank all City of Hudson employees, as we well as County, State and Federal employees for a job well done.
As Mayor Shubert’s Proclamation states, “These unsung heroes do the work that keeps our communities and nation functioning.”
