Honorable Position

A large audience enjoyed a unique display of Native American dancing, food and festivities at the installation of new Peyton, CO, Postmaster Jim Ramirez.

Ramirez is of Southern Ute and Spanish descent. He coordinated the diverse installation program.

“I’m very grateful for the tremendous support my family, customers, friends and postal employees have given me over the years,” Ramirez said. “This special installation was for them as much as for me.”

Ramirez, third from left in photo, said he was honored with his new position. When I began as the first Postmaster General I considered it a great honor as well as a large responsibility. Being a Postmaster is a unique and honorable position, and a lot of hard work.
