Graves Rips Post Office Decision to Drop Saturday Delivery

North Missouri Congressman Sam Graves is blasting the decision by the US Postal Service to end Saturday delivery.
“I do not support the United States Postal Service plan,” Graves said in a statement. “The USPS does need reform, however, reducing core services is not a long-term plan. I worry that reducing services will lead to other reductions like closing rural post offices.”
“There is still a large group of people – particularly in rural areas – whose lifeline to the outside world is the Postal Service. Whether it’s their social security check, an important document or even just a card from a loved one. I’ve introduced a sense of Congress, asking the postal service to keep mail delivery at 6 days a week.”
The Postal Service has been looking for ways to cuts costs and stay competive with private sector delivery services.
Graves and other members of the Missouri and Kansas Congressional delegations have Ben heavily involved. They’re resisting USPS cost cutting on several levels.
One of the major regional issues to the battle to keep Post Offices open in small communities.
