Cash Rock Star Treatment Interested

May 7, 2009 – 2:00am Would you like him, or her, (or you) to get $2,500, an all expense paid trip to, and deluxe
tour of, Washington, D.C., a plaque and all sorts of other goodies There is a way. You can nominate them (or get somebody to nominate you) for the GEICO Public Service Awards. They are presented every year in May to five outstanding feds (4 still working, 1 retired) for outstanding service in the fields of physical rehabilitation, traffic safety and accident prevention, substance abuse prevention and treatment, and fire prevention and safety. This year’s ceremony was at the National Archives. Guests got to eat and drink, mix and mingle, in the room right next to the Bill of Rights and other priceless documents. Again, it doesn’t get much better than that. In addition to footing the bill for the travel, tours and the event itself, GEICO President/CEO Tony Nicely presented a check for $30,000 to Robert Tobias and Steve Bauer of the Federal Employees Education and Assistance Fund. Tobias is former president of the National Treasury Employees Union and one of the founders of FEEA. Bauer is the guy who flies around the country, sometimes with a suitcase stuffed with cash money, to help feds in need. FEEA is a feds-oriented charity that gives loans, awards and grants to feds in need. It helped thousands after Katrina and the hurricanes that followed. GEICO, Blue Cross and other corporations help fund FEEA along with the payroll contributions of many federal and postal workers. The winners, all from West of the Mississippi, of this years’ public service awards:
Frank Kelley, Air Force Safety Center at New Mexico’s Kirtland Air Force Bases.
