The Daily Freeman reports that the post office at 111 Market St. in the village of Saugerties willl be named for late U.S. Rep. Maurice Hinchey, as President Donald Trump signed the bill into law. U.S. Sens. Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, both Democrats, and U.S. Rep. John Faso, (R-Kinderhook) co-sponsored the measure with U.S. Rep. Louise Slaughter, a Democrat from western New York who died this past March, and announced the signing July 26. “Naming Congressman Hinchey’s hometown post office after him is an enduring recognition of his lifelong commitment to public service and the people of Upstate New York,” said Faso. “I am glad that after months of work from New York delegation members in both chambers of Congress and on both sides of the aisle that this bill has been signed into law.” Read the full story in the Daily Freeman.
