Maloney Introduces Bill to Name Middletown Post Office After Former Congressman Ben Gilman

Washington, D.C. – Today, Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) introduced legislation to rename the Middletown Post Office in honor and recognition of the late Rep. Ben Gilman. Representative Gilman represented the Hudson Valley in Congress for thirty years, from 1973 to 2003, and was a World War II veteran.

The legislation will designate the United States Postal Service building on 40 Fulton Street in Middletown as the “Benjamin A. Gilman Post Office Building.”

“Ben Gilman lived a life dedicated to service – through both his thirty-year career representing the Middletown area in Congress and his time serving our country in World War II,” said Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney. “His devotion to the Hudson Valley is his lasting legacy, and it is my honor to re-introduce this bill to honor his legacy with the Benjamin A. Gilman Post Office Building.”

Ben Gilman died in December of 2016 after thirty years in Congress representing the Middletown area. While rising to national prominence as the Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Rep. Gilman remained steadfast in his commitment to the Middletown area and Hudson Valley veterans, students, and families. Rep. Gilman was a staunch advocate for the United States Postal Service as a member of the House Post Office and Civil Service Committee.
