Proposed Dec. 24 Holiday For State Employees --- Letter to Governor Crist from Rep. Alan B. Williams

Dear Governor Crist:

Florida is blessed to have a vital corps of state government employees who, with care and skill, provide crucial services to Floridians throughout the year.

As we celebrate this holiday season, I urge you to join me in sending a special message of appreciation to these state workers, whose accomplishments often go unnoticed or without praise.

To deliver a much-needed “thank you” to our state employees, I write to encourage you to issue a Proclamation or an Executive Order, or take other necessary action, to declare Thursday, December 24, 2009 a paid holiday for state workers.

I am sure that such a declaration will give these employees special time with their families and allow them to prepare for holiday celebrations at home, as well as opportunities to shop and travel. It also may provide a helpful boost to our state’s retailers. Such a morale-boosting step will surely provide a great opportunity to tell our state employees and their families how much you value their efforts.

I wish you and your family a warm and joyous Holiday Season.

Alan B. Williams, Representative

Florida House District 8
