Protestors rally to protect Saturday mail delivery


Concerned citizens rallied on Sunday to protect Saturday mail delivery.

Dozens gathered outside of the Main post Office on Dalton Avenue to demand that Congress deliver a better plan to strengthen the Postal Service in the future.

Protestors believe that the U.S. Postal Service's plan to end six-day service is an attack on the institution. They say that many Americans- especially small-business owners, senior citizens and rural residents- would suffer if the Postal Service ceased Saturday delivery.

Protestors argue that cutting Saturday mail would also delay important household and business transactions forcing customers to shift to high-cost competing services.

The U.S. Postal Service is currently the only universal communications network that reaches every address in America six days a week.

Established by the Constitution and using no taxpayer funding for its operations, protestors say the Postal Service is a vital public institution that Ohio cannot afford to see dismantled.
