Olson: President Signs Pearland Police Officer Post Office Bill Into Law
Washington, DC –Rep. Pete Olson (TX-22) today announced that late Friday, President Trump signed his bill to name a Post Office after fallen Pearland police officer Endy Nddiobong Ekpanya into law. Officer Ekpanya was killed by a drunk driver on June 16, 2016, while responding to a non-emergency call. He was the first officer in Pearland to die in the line of duty in over 40 years.
“I thank President Trump for signing this bill into law,” Rep. Pete Olson said. “Our Pearland community can never repay our debt to Endy, but this Post Office is a small gesture to thank him for his sacrifice. When Pearland residents visit the Endy Ekpanya Post Office Building, they will see his name and remember his sacrifice and dedication to keeping our community safe.”
H.R. 294, the Endy Nddiobong Ekpanya Post Office Building Act will designate the U. S. Post Office located at 2700 Cullen Boulevard in Pearland, Texas, the “Endy Nddiobong Ekpanya Post Office Building.”
