Meet The People: Frank Silberstein

Frank Silberstein has been a mathematical statistician at the U.S. Census Bureau for 25 years. As chair of the National Fair Practices Affirmative Action Coordinators Subcommittee and a member of the EEO and Representation Subcommittee, Silberstein works to make sure the members in District 14 are properly informed of their EEO rights via regular trainings and consultation. He loves it when he can make a difference and help people get the justice and fairness they deserve and not just rolled over by government managers. "The government has an obligation to serve the public and I have always been proud to do that," says Silberstein, who is also chief shop steward and fair practices coordinator for AFGE Local 2782.
