Rep. Aguilar Reintroduces Bill to Rename Del Rosa Post Office to Honor Dr. Margaret B. Hill

WASHINGTON, DC — Today, Rep. Pete Aguilar reintroduced legislation renaming the Del Rosa Post Office to honor the late Dr. Margaret B. Hill, beloved educator and community advocate who passed away in December 2021.

“Dr. Margaret B. Hill was the heartbeat of San Bernardino,” said Rep. Pete Aguilar. “Her legacy and impact on our community lives on in the countless lives she’s touched. It is an honor to continue leading the effort to enshrine her name in San Bernardino, and it is my hope that this will remind us all to live out her legacy for years to come.”

“On behalf of Dr. Margaret Bynum Hill’s family, it has been our honor to share our beloved Margaret with the Inland Empire,” said Erika Johnson, Dr. Hill’s niece. “She was committed to the community and the People, and her legacy will live on for many years to come. Because of this commitment to San Bernardino, it’s with great honor that a local Post Office will be named after her.”

“Dr. Margaret Hill dedicated her life to transforming our city to be a better place for our children to grow up and thrive in. She truly was the matriarch for the city of San Bernardino and embodied what it meant to be a servant leader,” said Dr. Scott Wyatt Board President of the San Bernardino City Unified School District. “The naming ofDate Street post office after Dr. Hill will honor her legacy as a public servant, and symbolizes what Dr. Hill stood for, building relationships by connecting people from all different walks of life, both close and afar, for the betterment of our society.” 

“I am still in awe of the amazing contributions made by the late Dr. Margaret B. Hill, one of her amazing gifts was the ability to communicate with everyone,” said Dr. Gwen Dowdy-Rodgers, San Bernardino County Board of Education Trustee Area D. “This is why it is so befitting to have a post office named in her honor that speaks to her legacy of making sure that we continue to communicate with each other especially through written communication as she often did.”

“Dr. Hill was one of the most reliable people that I have ever met,” said Terrance Stone, CEO of Young Visionaries Youth Leadership Academy. “It’s only fitting that a post office that is known for reliability will be named in her honor.”

Rep. Aguilar serves as Chair of the House Democratic Caucus and as a member of the House Committee on Appropriations.
