Milford welcomes first African-American female Postmaster

New Haven

History will be made in Milford on Thursday. The city is welcoming its first African-American female Postmaster.  

Jeanette Sherrod will take the traditional Postmaster’s oath of office at noon on Thursday at the Milford City Hall at 110 River Street.  

She is also only the second woman in the city’s history to serve as Postmaster! Since William Durand was appointed as Milford’s first Postmaster in 1795, there has been only one other woman in the city’s 224 history to serve as Postmaster

Mayor Benjamin Blake of Milford is also scheduled to speak at the event.
