By Don Mohler, Baltimore County Executive

This Labor Day, let’s honor the people who put their skills and passions to work.

The teachers getting ready for the first day of school. Police, firefighters, EMS and 911 specialists who work every day to keep us safe, regardless of holidays. The entrepreneurs, scientists and researchers whose imaginations and discoveries keep us healthier and more connected. The bus drivers and carry-out drivers, maintenance crews and tech geeks, accountants and writers, construction workers and caregivers, security guards and artists, check-out clerks and cooks --  they all make our lives better through their work. 

Thank you for all you do.

“If you’ve ever seen the look on somebody’s face the day they finally get a job, they look like they could fly.” This line from the film Dave captures feelings that go beyond putting a paycheck in someone’s pocket. Work brings with it dignity, respect and confidence. 

A job does not define who we are as individuals, but the jobs in a community help define what we value.   

This Labor Day, let’s honor the people who are putting their skills and passions to work.

The teachers getting ready for the first day of school. Police, firefighters and 911 specialists who work every day to keep us safe, regardless of holidays. The entrepreneurs, scientists and researchers whose imaginations and discoveries keep us healthier and more connected. The maintenance crews, tech geeks, accountants, construction workers, truck drivers, security guards, artists, mechanics, cooks and medical teams who make our daily lives better.   

What you bring to the job is the power of work. Thanks for all you do.
