— State employees work hard for the benefit of Georgians.

Agriculture department employees oversee operations at the State Farmer’s Market in Forest Park.

College professors make sure their students are ready to enter the workforce.

Health department doctors and nurses heal the sick.

Georgia State Patrol troopers help keep residents safe.

Gov. Nathan Deal is encouraging residents to take time next week to say “thank you” to these workers during State Employee Recognition Week.

“State employees dedicate their time and service on behalf of their fellow statesmen in order to help keep Georgia pushing forward,” said Deal in a written statement. “I would like to extend my gratitude to all state employees, including my staff, for their cohesive efforts to help make Georgia a better place to live, work and raise a family.”

State employees work for a wide range of agencies, including University System of Georgia, Farmer’s Market, Georgia State Patrol, Georgia Bureau of Investigations, local health departments, state parks, Department of Family and Children’s Services, Georgia National Guard, Department of Driver Services offices, Georgia Public Broadcasting and the environmental protection division.

Everyone holding an EBT card should thank those who work to pay for it.

The American poor is too proud to be grateful, much less being thankful.......A matter fact, some has made careers from being poor.
