Griffin: ‘I Am Encouraged’ by Continuation of USPS Service

May 9, 2012

WASHINGTON – Congressman Tim Griffin (AR-02) issued the following statement regarding the United States Postal Service’s (USPS) decision to maintain services at a number of Arkansas post offices:

“After numerous conversations and contacts with the USPS, I am encouraged that they have found a way to save money while maintaining limited services at a number of post offices targeted for closure in the Second Congressional District.  I’ve worked hard to make sure the views of Arkansans impacted by these proposed closings are known, and I am convinced that the best path forward for the USPS lies in bold reform not another expensive Washington bailout.”
