President Donald J. Trump has signed into law legislation introduced by Congressman Earl L. "Buddy" Carter (R-Ga.) to name the Post Office Building at 111 James Street in Reidsville, Georgia as the Senator Jack Hill Post Office Building.

“For five years it was my honor to sit next to Jack Hill in the Georgia State Senate. He was a close friend and mentor to me and I miss him very much, just as I know many other Georgians do, as well,” said Carter. "The Senator Jack Hill Post Office Building will help preserve Jack's wonderful legacy in the community he loved so much, and serve as a special reminder of Jack's service and dedication to his neighbors and his state for generations to come. This honor is truly well deserved, and I can't wait to see it."

Born and raised in Reidsville, Senator Jack Hill was a dear friend and mentor to Carter and much of Georgia's Congressional delegation. A retired grocer, Senator Hill was sworn into the Georgia State Senate in 1991, and eventually was named chairman of the Senate Budget Committee. His 30 years of service to Georgia were marked by Senator Hill’s commitment to his fellow Georgians, and under his leadership as Chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee, Georgia maintained a “Triple A” bond rating. Senator Hill also served in Georgia’s Air National Guard for 33 years as both a unit commander and State Inspector General.            

Every member of Georgia's House delegation joined Carter in the introduction of the bill.
