1pm David Concerned citizens of Florida will rally on March 24 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 the Main Post Office on March 24 at 1:00 p.m. in Naples, and all members of the community are invited to attend. The Postal Serviceâ’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 â" especially small-business owners, senior citizens and rural residents â" 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 Americaâ’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 (state) cannot afford to see dismantled.
