A former member of the United States Postal Service’s Citizens’ Stamp Advisory Committee has endorsed former postmaster general Benjamin Bailar’s criticism of the current stamp program.
Cary Brick, a former congressional staffer who left the committee last year, said in an Aug. 7 statement that he also fears marketing officials are having too much influence on stamp selections.
“The bottom-line fact is this: the Committee has been hijacked by the Postal Service’s marketing geniuses who believe that stamp subjects should be selected and designed with what they hope their potential sales revenues will bring into the coffers,” he said in a statement.
“They apparently are convinced that 49-cent stamps will bring the Postal Service into the black. What nonsense.”
