Lubbock rally to protect Saturday mail delivery March 24th

From National Association of Letter Carriers:

Concerned citizens of Texas will rally on March 24th to protect Saturday mail delivery and demand that Congress deliver a better plan to strengthen the Postal Service for the future. The rally will take place at Singer Post Office, 4901 S. Loop 289 on March 24th at 2:00 pm in Lubbock, and all members of the community are invited to attend.

The Postal Service's plan to shrink the Postal Service and end six-day service is an attack on the future of this great institution, on the customers who need it and on the employees who support it. Many Americans — especially small-business owners, senior citizens and rural residents — would suffer if the strength and reach of our Postal Service is compromised. In addition, cutting Saturday Mail would delay important household and business transactions, including bills, invoices and personal communications, and may force customers to shift to high-cost competing services.

The U.S. Postal Service is America's only universal communications network, reaching every address in America six days a week. Established by the Constitution and using no taxpayer funding for its operations, the Postal Service is a vital public institution that Texas cannot afford to see dismantled.
