Congressman Joe Morelle announced he has introduced legislation to dedicate a Fairport post office to the late Louise and Bob Slaughter.
“Louise Slaughter was a dear friend, a trailblazer, and a champion for families in Monroe County and across the nation,” said Morelle. “She leaves behind an incredible legacy which I am proud to honor by introducing legislation to designate her hometown post office as the Louise and Bob Slaughter Post Office. Louise has left a lasting impact on our entire community, and we remain grateful to her and her husband for their immeasurable contributions to our society.”
“My parents had the good fortune to move to Fairport in 1959, and my father worked at the American Can Company facility in the village. My mom and dad appreciated the natural beauty of Fairport and were always involved in the community,” said Robin Slaughter Minerva, daughter of Louise and Bob Slaughter. “It is a great honor for an American to have a U.S. Post Office dedicated to them, and on behalf of our family, I’d like to thank Joe Morelle for introducing this legislation to name a post office after two great Americans and proud Fairport residents, Louise and Bob Slaughter.”
The facility to be renamed in Louise and Bob Slaughter’s honor is located at 770 Ayrault Road in Fairport. Currently a carrier annex, the facility will be undergoing renovations over the next year to become a full retail post office.
This legislation, H.R. 7293, was introduced by Morelle on Dec. 13 with the bipartisan support of 25 members of the New York delegation.
