PatrickH: Public Service With A Smile

PatrickH: Had the most amazing interaction with a Coeur d'Alene street crew today. We were heading south on Atlas and they are doing some patching that required a flagger, and the woman flagging us through was waving and very cheerfully wishing everyone a good morning. I was having a bad morning, and it helped make it better. Hats off to the streets dept. for having someone this great working for them!

Question: Can you name a public servant in your community who puts a smile on your face whenever you see him/her?
