SENATOR GOLDEN STATEMENT ON UNITED STATES POSTAL SERVICE DECISION TO DELAY AND REVIEW PROPOSED CLOSINGS

Brooklyn – State Senator Martin J. Golden (R-C-I, Brooklyn) today issued the following statement in response to the decision of the United States Postal Service:

 

"I believe that the United States Post Office is acting wisely in holding off on closing any post offices or postal stations until the United States Congress completely reviews the agency's operations.

 

There is no denying that the budget of the United States Postal Service must and should be reviewed, but it must be done in a way that will have the least impact on the customer. It would be wrong for them to make haphazard decisions so to reduce their deficit, such as closing post offices, which would have long term consequences for the average American.

Dear Friend,

The 2012 New York State Legislative Session is fast approaching. Job creation and strengthening our economy remain my top priorities and there is no doubt that this will be a major focus of  our discussions and planning in Albany.

 Last year, The Senate Majority  closed a $10 billion budget deficit without raising taxes or fees and worked closely with Governor Andrew Cuomo to enact a two percent property tax cap and other economy strengthening building blocks. We need to do more in 2012.
