I would like to express my appreciation for the support that Sandusky and the surrounding communities have shown for keeping the USPS 448-449 zip code operations in Mansfield. The USPS has proceeded to the next step in removing those operations by announcing a date and time for the Town Hall Meeting. It will be 7 p.m. April 7 at the Mansfield Senior High Auditorium, 124 N. Linden Road, Mansfield.

It is imperative that everyone shows up and is heard. Letters in opposition of moving the mail processing and cancellation out of Mansfield should be mailed to: Manager Consumer Affairs, 2400 Orange Room 25, Cleveland, OH 44101-9631, and to your state representatives. The letters should be mailed ASAP so the postmark is before April 2. It is my understanding that the first letters of opposition to the manager of consumer affairs were to be considered before moving to the next step of a town hall meeting; and a second stage of opposition will be needed for consideration at the town hall meeting on April 7.

Again, I urge everyone to attend this town hall meeting.

It is your mail that will be sent to Akron and Cleveland to be canceled and processed.

Isn’t it time Sandusky stands up and says “No, we do not want delayed mail and diminished service!”?
