"CBJ employees are incredible," said City Manager Kim Kiefer. "They work hard day in and day out around the clock to make sure that city services are provided in a way that is reliable, efficient, and in many cases, invisible to our citizens. It is a good thing when people don't stop to think about the quality of their drinking water, the crime rate, or the cleanliness of a community park; that means we are doing a good job." Kiefer, herself a 30+ year veteran of city service, went on to add, "For me, public service has been a rewarding career choice. I believe most of our employees feel that way as well. It is one of the reasons CBJ is a great place to work."

Of course, it's also a day off for most workers - we celebrate labor by not working.
