With all the grousing we do about the circus that is City Council and the general inefficiencies of DC government, it’s nice to take a minute to think about who is really doing great work while the Harriette Walters and Marion Barrys of the world grab all the headlines. The Cafritz Awards for Excellence in DC Government are now accepting nominations, and past winners have run the gamut from police officers to social workers, from recreation workers to District CTO office employees. Each winner receives $7,500 cash and is celebrated at a gala event next summer.
Have you had a great experience with a staff member of DC Government? The nomination deadline is December 11, 2009, so get nominating.
