Postal Employee Receives People’s Choice Award

Peoples choice award

The People’s Choice Awards are a popular way for fans to vote for their favorite movies, actors, musicians, and a variety of others aspects of the entertainment industry. Its application, however, isn’t limited to those in front of the camera as one postal employee recently discovered.

The Flume, a Park County, Colorado, publication, is issued every Friday for members of the local community. Recently, it published its 2013 People’s Choice Award list, including the category of best postal worker. Taking top honor in that area was Retail Associate Josh Carotenuto.

Carotenuto is a part-time, flexible employee at the Fairplay Post Office. He began his postal career in December 2007, and his customer’s affection for his positive attitude and courteous nature have grown every year since.

Postmaster Loretta Millemon works with Carotenuto to serve the 1,400 residents of the Fairplay community. While Carotenuto’s infectious personality and upbeat banter with customers made him a strong candidate for the award, his selection wasn’t entirely unexpected as he took the runner-up slot for the same award in 2012.

Do you think more publications should have similar awards for postal employees in their communities?
