Robert Namanny will be sworn in as the new Meadow Vista Postmaster at 1 p.m. today at the Meadow Vista Post Office, 16930 Placer Hills Road. Namanny, 63, began his career in Utah as a letter carrier in 1978. He carried mail at the Auburn Post office and served as a clerk at the Meadow Vista Post Office for nine years. He served as Postmaster in Somerset and Penryn and held a number of officer-in-charge positions in Hanksville, Utah, Cool and Meadow Vista. “Being a Postmaster is a high honor,” said Namanny. “Like being a member of the military or Congress, Postmasters are sworn to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. It is my goal to provide prompt, courteous and accurate service to all my customers.” He has a BA degree from the University of California, Santa Barbara. He served in the U.S. Air Force and graduated from the Defense Language Institute in Monterey. Namanny, his wife, Patricia, and six children (Mark, Andrew, Duncan, Scott, Sean and Steven) reside in Auburn. He and his wife operate a board and care facility for the elderly in Auburn. Namanny has served in his church as a youth teacher and choir director. For 10 years, he was a member of the musical group, Bravo, that performed concerts in Auburn. The group is best known for their Fourth of July Clock Tower concerts. As Meadow Vista Postmaster, Namanny will manage six employees. He will also oversee 1,400 deliveries on three rural routes and 1,166 Post Office boxes.
