After more than seven months on the job as Fredericksburg’s postmaster, it finally became official for Debbie Marquardt.
In front of her family, friends and in front of former Fredericksburg postmasters, Marquardt on April 21 was sworn in as the Fredericksburg Post Office’s new postmaster.
She has worked 33 years in the postal service and has worked at the local post office since 1983.
Marquardt initially took over as postmaster Sept. 5, 2015.
Tammy Snell, manager for Post Office Operations for the Rio Grande District, swore her in.
“Just in the last couple of months that I’ve worked with her, I’ve seen that Marquardt does a great job,” said Snell. “She’s an outstanding employee, very committed, very loyal and very knowledgeable of the operation.”
