Press Release

Washington, DC – On Friday, Congressman Bill Foster (IL-11) introduced a bill to designate the U.S. Post Office facility located at 525 N. Broadway in Aurora, Illinois, as the Kenneth M. Christy Post Office Building. The bill is co-sponsored by Congressman Rodney Davis (IL-13).

Ken Christy passed away suddenly on March 26, 2016. Christy spent over 35 years as a letter carrier for the Aurora Post Office, and was currently serving as Aurora Township Clerk, as well as the president of the Illinois State Association of Letter Carriers.

“Ken was a true leader in every sense of the word,” Foster said. “He was a dedicated union and community advocate who worked tirelessly on behalf of his fellow letter carriers and fellow citizens. What better way to honor his legacy of public service than have the Aurora Post Office bear his name.”
