SHORT HILLS, NJ — With more than three decades of delivering mail in all kinds of weather and road conditions, letter carriers Steven Baker, Jonathan Meyer, and Alison Valentino were recognized at a special March 15 ceremony at the Short Hills Post Office for one million miles of accident free driving. The highlight of the special ceremony was the presentation of the National Safety Council’s prestigious Million Mile award plaques. The Million Mile award is presented to professional drivers who have driven one million miles without a preventable accident. 

To put the three letter carriers’ achievement in perspective, you would have to travel around the earth 40.1 times to cover one million miles. The presentation of the National Safety Council’s Million Mile award plaque tot eh Short Hills carriers reflects the Postal Service’s commitment to safety and pride in its employees who provide excellent service, while safeguarding themselves and the neighborhoods they serve.

Among those recognizing the four safety conscious carriers were U.S. Postal Service Northern New Jersey District Post Office Operations Manager Mark Hernandez, Short Hills Postmaster Darin Fulcher, and National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) Union Branch 38 President Michael O’Neill.

The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund operations.
