League says it saved post offices, but couldn’t save the postmaster

League of Postmasters President Mark Strong has explained the new plans for drastically changing the way small post offices are classified and staffed in a video presentation for members. In the video, Strong defends the actions the postmaster organizations took in response to those plans, but says there was little they could do:

“… we had done a wonderful job with talking to the senate, congress, and even our customers about the need for rural post offices. What we hadn’t done is we hadn’t saved postmasters. We had saved post offices. We had saved universal service, but we had not saved the postmaster.”
