Legislation would name East Tampa post office in honor of the late Rev. Abe Brown

TAMPA — An East Tampa post office would be named in honor of the late Rev. Abe Brown under legislation filed last week by U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor.

Brown, pastor of the First Baptist Church of College Hill and founder of Prison Crusade Ministries, later renamed the Abe Brown Ministries, died last year.

Castor's bill is likely a few months from consideration, according to her office. If passed, the Produce Station at 2810 E Hillsborough Ave. would be renamed.

That post office was among 3,700 nationwide that had been considered for closure. But it will remain open, it was announced last month.
