Whitman County Gazette - Serving Whitman County since 1877

A bipartisan priority


August 27, 2020

Here in rural Whitman County, we depend on the USPS to deliver medicine, or receiving and paying bills, for communicating with family and friends with letters, cards and presents, and even to receive this newspaper. If I had to use a commercial carrier for these services, the cost would be greater than I could afford.

Now, as our mail service is caught up in politics, we need to realize mail service will continue to deteriorate after the election unless federal support is provided soon in order to maintain or improve this essential service.

Please contact your Republican elected officials and let them know all citizens, not just those of us in rural Whitman County are affected. The USPS should be a bipartisan priority. We often hear that a personal letter carries more weight when it comes to the office of an elected official; more than a petition with many signatures, more than an email, or more than a telephone call.
