Rahall Meets with National League of Postmasters

WASHINGTON, D.C. – In his Washington office, U.S. Rep. Nick Rahall (D-W.Va.) Tuesday met with representatives of the National League of Postmasters to discuss his efforts in protecting post offices and mail delivery services in southern West Virginia.

 

“I share the frustration of many West Virginians who believe that the Postal Service is intent upon achieving cost savings through service reductions at rural postal facilities. I continue to fight these efforts and have communicated my concern repeatedly to both the Postal Service and the Postal Regulatory Commission,” said Rahall. “Postal services play a tremendous role in the ability of our citizens in southern West Virginia to stay connected and I will continue to press the Postal Service to look at other ways to become more profitable and competitive by improving and modernizing its services rather than cutting off rural customers and undermining its public service obligations.”
