Talk Back to Washington
About 90 percent of federal employees live and work outside of Washington. We wondered what they would say if they could talk to headquarters. So, we asked them. In Federal News Radio's special report, Talk Back to Washington, we provide insight for the federal manager on the workforce outside the Beltway. We find out about their working conditions, what they think of policy decisions made in Washington, and what they want Washington to know about the work they do day-in and day-out.

As part of our special series, "Talk Back to Washington: Insight for the federal manager on the workforce outside of D.C.," he told Federal News Radio about making the move inside the Beltway after two decades serving outside it.
