Jim Shannon on Public Service


So what does public service mean to you?
Public service
means a great deal to me because it's an
opportunity for me to give back to, not
only my small community that I live in,
but the greater nation that I live in.
Volunteer work has an impact on people
and so does working at local levels of
government. But really, the federal
government is something that impacts the
lives of people every day in a really
huge manner.
