Padilla, Butler Introduce Bill to Rename San Francisco Post Office After Late Senator Dianne Feinstein

WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Senators Alex Padilla and Laphonza Butler (both D-Calif.) introduced a bill to rename a San Francisco post office after the late California Senator and former San Francisco Mayor Dianne Feinstein. The “Dianne Feinstein Post Office” would be located at 180 Steuart Street on the ground level of the Rincon Center, off of the Embarcadero with a view overlooking the Bay Bridge.

As Mayor of San Francisco in the 1980s, Feinstein helped oversee the development of the Rincon Center. This complex includes the Rincon Annex, which served as San Francisco’s largest postal sorting and distribution center for several decades. Today, the Rincon Annex hosts a series of murals depicting San Francisco’s history and is listed as a San Francisco Designated Landmark and on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.

“Senator Feinstein was a towering figure not just in modern California politics, but in the history of our state and our nation,” said Senator Padilla. “Just as she had a keen ability to bridge divides and connect with people from all walks of life, our local post offices symbolize the importance of keeping Americans connected. It is only fitting that we celebrate her memory by dedicating an institution essential to a functioning and fair democracy in her name.”

“I stand on the shoulder of giants like Senator Feinstein who as the first woman Senator for California, served her country with grace and fortitude,” said Senator Butler. “Renaming the 180 Steuart Street post office in her honor is just one of the many ways we can celebrate her remarkable legacy of service.”

Following Senator Feinstein’s passing, Senator Padilla and his colleagues unanimously passed a resolution to honor her life and legacy, adjourning the Senate to allow members to travel to her funeral services out of respect for her memory. The resolution recognized Senator Feinstein as the longest serving Senator to represent California and the longest serving female Senator in the history of the United States.
