WASHINGTON, D.C. — Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-WI) today led the Wisconsin House delegation in introducing a bill that would rename the U.S. Post Office in Krakow, WI in honor of its longtime postmaster, Romuald “Bud” Brzezinski.
Brzezinski, who was a lifelong resident of Krakow, WI, had a distinguished career with the U.S. Postal Service, and was not only recognized as the longest serving postmaster at the Post Office in Krakow, but was also recognized as Wisconsin’s longest actively serving postmaster during the state’s sesquicentennial celebration in 1998. Brzezinski ultimately retired in 1999 after 46 years with the U.S. Postal Service.
“Bud was an active member of the Krakow community who spent more than 40 years serving Northeast Wisconsin as a postmaster,” said Rep. Gallagher. “I can’t think of a better way to honor his life and his legacy than by renaming this post office in his honor.”
Outside of work, Brzezinski was also an involved member of the Krakow community. He was secretary of the Krakow Sportsmen Club for 15 years, a member of St. Casimir Parish for over 20 years, bowled for three different teams in a Wednesday night bowling league, and served as as an election official for the Town of Angelica. He passed away on June 26, 2020, at the age of 90.
