WILLIAMS, Calif. — On Tuesday, April 25, Rachelle Resendez will follow a proud tradition dating back to 1874 when William H. Williams became the first Postmaster of what was then known as the Central Post Office.

Resendez will raise her right hand to take the official Oath of Office as the Postmaster of the Williams Post Office at a 1 p.m. ceremony at the Williams Post Office, 801 E St. in Williams.

Post Office Operations Manager Paul Heroux will administer the oath.

Resendez, a proud six-year postal service employee, began her postal career in 2017 in Marysville as an Assistant Rural Carrier.

She went on to serve as a carrier in Colusa before stepping into management in the fall of 2019 as a supervisor.

In 2022, Resendez took on her most recent role as the acting Postmaster of Arbuckle before her promotion to the Williams Post Office.

As outlined in the USPS Delivering for America plan, the Postal Service is committed to modernizing and continually adapting to the evolving needs of all customers.

As the Postmaster of the Williams Post Office Resendez is prepared to serve her community with that development in mind.

“To me, a Postmaster is a leader. They are first in line for the hard work, first to seek out solutions to a problem, first to accept accountability for a mistake, and first to seek out new knowledge and ideas,” said Resendez.

“My goal as the Postmaster of Williams is to bring about positive growth. I would like the Williams Post Office to grow as both a business and as part of the community. I would like to see my employees grow both at home and in their careers. And I am committed to growing as a leader and as an asset to the Postal Service.”

Resendez resides in Colusa, where she enjoys spending time with her friends and family including husband, Roberto 40, and children Joseph 22, William 20, Peter 18, Roberto 16 and James 10.

In her free time Resendez enjoys reading, baking and crafting (wreaths, stickers, sewing, beadwork). She also enjoys volunteering in the local community and participating in charitable events.

As the Postmaster of Williams, Resendez supervises six employees and oversees the retail services and the daily distribution of mail and packages to 1,032 delivery stops, 1,302 PO Boxes, two rural delivery routes and one highway contract to a community of over 5,500 residents.
