AKRON—Today, ‘My Mail, My Ohio’ announced a unified effort to stop the closure of four regional mail facilities in Ohio. These closures will slow mail delivery, negatively impact small businesses and non-profit organizations, and have a devastating effect on the Akron, Youngstown, Toledo and Dayton communities.
Myra Grubbs, spokesperson for the effort, made the following statement:
“Akron is one of four processing centers in Ohio, out of 82 nationwide slated for closure this year. Several Congressional Representatives from Ohio have co-sponsored legislation to protect our communities and keep these facilities open.”
“This is a bipartisan issue that is vital to the American economy and infrastructure. The United States Postal Service belongs to the citizens of this country. We’ve come together to work on behalf of our nation’s postal service, and on behalf of these communities.”
The coalition launched their website—www.mymailohio.com—earlier this week, which includes background information and contacts for elected officials.
