Senators Try To Save Local Post Office Days Before Closure

Washington, DC (WIBX) – “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds…” unless the post office closes, of course.

The inspirational motto is no match for the lack of money, and Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand are joining a group of senators making an eleventh hour attempt to save local post offices.

They need the U.S. Postal Service to keep them open just long enough for Washington to enact legislation that would reduce costs by billions of dollars and save thousands of local branches in the process.

If a moratorium is not put in place, the Pitcher Street mail processing facility in Utica would be one of the 3,700 offices closed nationwide. The Postal Service employs 200 people in Central New York.
