Patricia Wells is new Bridgeville Postmaster
By Mike McClure

Patricia Wells was officially installed as the new postmaster in Bridgeville during an installation ceremony on Wednesday, September 25 at Union United Methodist Church in Bridgeville Bridgeville commissioner Pat Correll served as the master of ceremonies and Wells' children, Kristin and Derek, led the audience in the pledge of allegiance. Robert Rider, president of the postal board of governors, was the guest speaker. "She has an excellent record with the postal service," Rider said. "Ultimately, when people think of the postal service they think of their local post office and their postmaster. When people have problems it's the postmaster that must act to resolve them." Wells, who was born and raised in Sussex County (Milton), has served as a clerk, carrier, and acting supervisor with various post offices before becoming postmaster in Ellendale. She was appointed as Bridgeville's postmaster in August. "I'm confident she will serve this community and its residents very well," said Beverly Kulikowski, post office operation manager South Jersey, who gave the oath of office. Wells' husband, Jeff, held the bible during the oath. "I'm very happy to be here," said Wells. " I've always been very active in a community." Wells also welcomed Bridgeville residents to visit her at the post office and to come to her with any questions or concerns.
