Government work is often criticized in the popular imagination and in the political discourse. Civil servants are derided as paper pushers or bureaucrats or, worse, nefarious agents of the deep state. The Government Hall of Fame and the Theodore Roosevelt Government Leadership Awards were started in 2019 to honor those who have achieved great things as federal officials and industry leaders.
Nominations for the 2021 Government Hall of Fame and Theodore Roosevelt Government Leadership Awards close Friday, May 28. Tom Shoop is executive vice president and editor in chief at GovExec Media. He joined the show to discuss the Government Hall of Fame and the Teddies.
