In August 1993, Jeffrey Salamon walked into the New Canaan post office as a letter carrier.
"Starting out as a letter carrier I feel gave me the advantage to get me where I am today," said Jeffrey Salamon.
Almost 20 years later, he's now Stamford's new postmaster. The City's post office serves 61,000 customers in Stamford and New Canaan.
"It's a challenging job, but it's a challenge that I welcome. I'm proud to watch over that many people's mail," said Salamon.
And Salamon says he's proud to represent the City for a second time in his life. The first was at 12 years old when he went to the little league world series with the Stamford Federal team.
"Playing before thousands of our family and friends and strangers, it was a thrilling moment for me to represent the City of Stamford. This is right up there with that," said Salamon.
"He truly loves Stamford. When he talks about Stamford, you can see there's a genuine affection. There's a genuine caring about the customers," said Lisa Landone, the post office's customer relations coordinator.
Before coming to Stamford, Salamon was postmaster of Cos Cob, Old Greenwich, and Westport. He was sworn as the City's postal leader earlier this month.
"It was a very exciting moment in my life," said Salamon.
"You really want to celebrate when the right people get put into the right positions. And I think that's the case with Jeff," said Landone."
