The United States Postal Service has sworn in a new executive postmaster of the Bronx, the first Trinidadian woman to serve in the position.  
Adela Livingston was officially sworn in on Friday as the 13th executive postmaster of the Bronx. She started her career in the Postal Service back in the 1980s as a letter carrier. She worked as a carrier, clerk and in delivery operations before reaching this prestigious position. 
“It is an honor to make that milestone… to have my people emulate, the younger girls emulate and see that they can do this also,” said Livingston.  
Livingston says that as postmaster, she’s aiming to provide a safe, reliable and effective service to those in the borough. She says her first official day in the office was actually Sept. 22, 2022, but that she is still humbled by Friday’s ceremony and thankful for the opportunity.
