  1. In case you have been hiding in the basement the last year democrat sen diane feinstein D-CA and her husband richard blum have a no bid contract to sell postal property……… must vacate so they can profit. how dare you stand in the way of rich 1% crony capitalists. by the way sen feinstein never worked in the private sector, only civil service/govt jobs……and has a net worth of $70 million. the husband net worth is over one billion. as democrats they are out for the little guy, as long as you get out of their square footage. look over there… is your enemy!

  2. Pittsburgh can’t handle anymore mail then they have. Johnstown sends mail back to Pittsburgh and to Altoona everyday because they can’t handle the volume. Look for Erie’s mail to be stored in trailers in Boscovs parking lot, and expect city to city delivery to be about 6 days.

  3. About time Erie closed. No volume ~~ not ever. Their O&D can be processed om Pgh/Roch automation in 20 minutes.

  4. Duluth, MN on the list for 18 April. What is happening? And where is our buddy Franken? Saw him on Lettermen last night. Guess he’s too busy to look out for ANYBODY but himself!
    Sure, Franken will say a joke about us and that will make everything okay. UNTIL the next time he is up for re-election, and then he will pretend to care about the USPS.

  5. In a few years, the USPS will be reopening all of these consolidated plants in order to facilitate the growing parcel delivery market. NO FORSIGHT!!

  6. When V.E.R.? Why not offer VER? Instead of forcing or placing them to a diffy post offices. Offer us VER to save all employees being downsized and keep them there.

  7. Communication of mail is what binds this country together… Why you want to tamper with Americans United States Postal Service ??? It’s all about the $$$$$$……

  8. Erie PA to Pittsburgh PA 2 1/2 Hrs on a good day.. Good luck getting your mail in 3 days…

  9. Erie PA to Rochester NY a 3hr trip on a good day…. Looking forward to getting my mail in 3days…. NOT!
