U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley of Oregon says he's pleased and not surprised that the five month moratorium keeping all post offices open is agreed to. He says he's been fighting for our rural post offices the whole time. "And it's wrong for our economy. Picture 500 people in a small town, having to drive 60 miles round trip several times a week. That’s a huge waste of time when a single truck can come down the road enroute to another town, and drop off mail for the town each day and hire someone for a few hours to keep that post office open. So it's wrong on the economy, it's wrong on rural America, it's just plain wrong. I’m going to absolutely keep fighting it." Merkley says the hold off is showing that the momentum is in our favor now.
