Paige letter: Postal Service

Even in these challenging and unpredictable economic times, letter carriers are dedicated bringing the mail to you in the safest and most efficient way possible because we believe it is important to you.

The U.S. Postal Service uses the latest technology to reach out to everyone almost every day in this country. Turning disadvantage into advantage, the internet has been used to increase parcel volume and revenue. Your support is vital for a strong and financially growing USPS.

Operating profits are healthy and pave the way to provide jobs for veterans without using taxpayer money.

When you support the USPS in a positive way, you support a strong America for future generations to come. The Postal Service has always been a part of the Constitution to protect the rights of the people of this land to keep in contact with each other.

Thank you for your continued encouragement to keep this tradition of public mail service going no matter what the challenges we may all face.

John Paige, president, Idaho State Association of Letter Carriers
