Over the past 12 years, I’ve been deeply privileged to serve on the Citizen Stamp Committee, with four of those years as its Chairman.
Through this journey, we’ve unveiled 1,000 stamps, each narrating its own unique story, contributing to the rich tapestry of American culture.
Legally, 12 years is the maximum term of service. As I prepare to step aside, I’m filled with anticipation for the new ideas and visions that will come after me.
This experience has been about so much more than stamps; it’s about the incredible people I’ve met, the stories we’ve shared, and the lasting memories we’ve crafted together.
Among the many highlights was the opportunity to spend time with esteemed personalities like Skip Gates from “Finding Your Roots”. Such moments have reminded me of the depth of our nation’s narrative and how stamps can be poignant windows into our shared history.
As I close this chapter, my heart overflows with gratitude.
To the upcoming storytellers, visionaries, and stamp enthusiasts: the legacy continues.
Here’s to the future. Thank you United States Postal Service and God bless America! 🇺🇸
