Senator Byrd on Public Service

Words to live by for all public servants (and those in the policy business) from the late Senator Byrd.

“In the real world, exemplary personal conduct can sometimes achieve much more than any political agenda. Comity, courtesy, charitable treatment of even our political opposites, combine with a concerted effort to not just occupy our offices, but to bring honor to them, will do more to inspire our people and restore their faith in us, their leaders, than millions of dollars of 30 second spots or glitzy puff pieces concocted by spinmeisters.”
