He was a passionate advocate for the federal workforce, and epitomized the best of public service. The congressman used his leadership of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform to hold government accountable to the people it serves. Even in the current polarized environment, he was willing to work across the political aisle for the benefit of his constituents and the American public. Mr. Cummings was a friend of the Partnership and an ally in our efforts to make government more effective. We thank him for his public service.” During the past 18 years, the nonpartisan, nonprofit Partnership for Public Service has been dedicated to making the federal government more effective for the public. We work across administrations to help transform the way government operates by increasing collaboration, accountability, efficiency and innovation. Visit opswebdev.wpengine.com to learn more.
