These days it seems like many of the people in political office are self serving whether they be businessmen with no political experience or politicians who are doing it only to make enrich their own lives. It is very unfortunate for us that the party that is currently holding the majority of the offices in the house and senate as well as the white house is the party of the self serving. Now some of their members have paid lip-service to being public servants but their action clearly demonstrate that they in fact do not care about the public. Some of them have even stated that they would not investigate their own party for treasonous acts but instead strip away public service programs. Having a record of public service would be a nice requirement to have before running of office but unfortunately it isn’t.
I want a president with a record of public service, someone whose life’s work shows our children that we don’t chase fame and fortune for ourselves: we fight to give everyone a chance to succeed. Michelle Obama
If you don’t like public service, don’t run for office. Elizabeth Esty
I feel that my father’s greatest legacy was the people he inspired to get involved in public service and their communities, to join the Peace Corps, to go into space. And really that generation transformed this country in civil rights, social justice, the economy and everything. Caroline Kennedy
