Profiles in Public Service tells the compelling stories about the unsung public servant leaders who have driven government’s most important accomplishments.
Co-hosts Loren DeJonge Schulman and Rachel Klein-Kircher help break down common myths about government by highlighting the critical ways in which federal employees have demonstrated bold leadership to protect our health, safety and general well-being. In an age when people continue to hold negative views about government—but also rely on it to solve big problems and crises—the stories we share promise to rebuild public faith in the nation’s largest public organization.
Reps. Derek Kilmer, D-Wash., and William Timmons, R-S.C., talk about their work on the Select Committee on the Modernization of Congress, a group striving to make our nation’s legislative branch more effective, efficient and transparent. Kilmer and Timmons discuss how and why the committee formed, the major issues it tackles and how it fosters bipartisan problem-solving in an era of congressional gridlock.
