President Barack Obama signed a bill last week to name a local post office after a congressman.
The Phoenix post office, located at 522 north Central Avenue, will be named “Ed Pastor Post Office.”
Pastor represented Arizona for 12 terms from 1991 until 2015, when he retired.
The bill was proposed by Rep. Ruben Gallego, who made a statement on the bill passing.
“Throughout his life, Congressman Pastor has demonstrated a remarkable commitment to public service, and I am extremely grateful that we are able to recognize him in this way.
“Congressman Pastor has earned a reputation as a tireless advocate for the people of Arizona. I am committed to following in his footsteps and continuing his fight to preserve our environment, to protect the civil rights of every American, and to invest in our nation’s transportation infrastructure.”
