POSTAL FACTS: Dec. 4, 2014 (updated)

What reporters and commentators are writing and saying about the Postal Service, and how NALC members and leaders are making their voices heard. 


NALC President Fredric Rolando had a lengthy letter in the Wednesday, Dec. 3 edition of The New Orleans Advocate, effectively responding to an editorial that the paper ran on Nov. 30. The Advocate’s 98,000 circulation makes it one of the two largest newspapers in Louisiana.

President Rolando had a letter in the Tuesday, Dec. 2 edition of The Kansas City Star, in response to an editorial that properly blamed Postal Service red ink on pre-funding but then illogically called for cuts in the networks and possibly ending Saturday delivery. Rolando also publicized the large USPS profit in October, the first month of FY2015. The Star is Missouri’s largest newspaper, with a circulation of 200,000 that reaches beyond Missouri to nearby Kansas, Nebraska and Iowa.
