Integration of readings, lecture and discussions.News Article 1. Cite examples from Mr. Price’s commentary of the public service values you identified. Answer – Based on the article findings, we come to know that Mr. Price has worked as a CIA analyst from 2006 and most recently held position as the spokesman for the National Security Council. Also, we come to know that Mr. Price has always been interested in serving the nation, and that made him work for CIA. The first example which illustrated Mr. Price’s commentary of the public service values is his working with CIA that taught him how to deter and disrupt terror attacks in an attempt to save the nation. The another example which illustrated Mr. Price’s commentary of the public service values dealswith the covert action undertaken by him which encompassed a broad range of activities outside the operations of traditional intelligence collection (Witesman and Walters, 2014).2. How does his view of the role of a public servant differ from the Trump administration’s view? What does this difference say about the relationship between the public service and democracy? Answer - Mr. Price holds the belief that during his career as CIA analyst in the administration of George W. Bush and Barack Obama, the efforts of CIA and their inputs were taken seriously andrespectfully. The speech of Donald Trump at CIA memorial risks went disputed with the Central Intelligence Agency as the statements made by him insulted the credibility of CIA agency.

The relationship between the public service and democracy is very challenging. As the public service plays a significant role in our democracy, these challenges arise from several attributes ofthe public service. Since public service is a responsibility for all Americans, any disputes or feuds among the citizen due to any rhetorical statement made by an individual can perturb the relationship between the public service and democracy (Kernaghan and Langford, 2014). 3. Should he have resigned? Why or why not given the values you have selected?Answer – Mr. Price should not have resigned; instead, he must have stood for the credibility of his department’s efforts and work. The undermine efforts of CIA as mentioned in the Trump’s statement was supposed to be opposed to presenting the results and activities that expediently met the national security standard. The values I have chosen here stands in favor of the democracy and the public service. Since our democracy has always remained vibrant, substantial attention must be delivered to sort the tensions between democracy and the public service. In an attempt to do so an individual must strongly address and solve the issues instead of committing a wrongful decision (Box, 2015).
