Town Leaders and Rep. Zeldin Help Honor Congressman Bill Carney

On December 2nd, Supervisor Ed Wehrheim joined with other Town officials, Congressman Lee Zeldin, post office officials, and the family of Congressman Bill Carney to rename the Smithtown Post Office in honor of the late Representative from New York’s First Congressional District.

The Smithtown Post Office, located at 25 Route 111 in Smithtown, was formally renamed as the Congressman Bill Carney Post Office following the signing of H.R. 828 in August. The bill was introduced to the House by Congressman Zeldin, receiving bipartisan support in passing both the United States House of Representatives and the United States Senate.
