New Lotus postmaster

From page A14 | August 23, 2013 |

On Wednesday, Aug. 7, Lisa Craviotto followed a tradition dating back to Jan. 6, 1881, when the first Lotus Post office was operated out of a general store and the storekeeper, Mr. Gallaner, served as the first postmaster. Craviotto will raised her right hand to take the official oath of office as postmaster at the Lotus Post Office, 7310 State Highway 49, Lotus CA 95651. Manager Post Office Operations Jagdeep Grewal administered the oath of office.

Craviotto started her postal career as the postmaster relief at the Lotus Post Office from 2007 to 2008, and served as the officer-in-charge of that office and the Coloma Post Office from 2009 to 2013. She was the postmaster of Coloma prior to being selected as the Lotus postmaster.

“As postmaster, my goal is to promote a positive, viable postal service now and into the future,” said Craviotto.

Craviotto, 25, has one daughter, Olivia, 2, and resides in Cool. She enjoys knitting baby shoes, reading, gardening, traveling. She graduated from Golden Sierra High School, class of 2006. Craviotto plans to do volunteer work as she did as Coloma postmaster, when she volunteered her time with Christmas in Coloma and organized rafting trips.

As Lotus postmaster, Craviotto oversees three employees who process and deliver a daily mail volume of more than 1,673 pieces on one contract delivery service and to 304 post office boxes.
