GA-Sen A: Sarah Riggs Amico (D) Pressures Trump & Congress To Fully Fund The U.S. Postal Service

2 min read

Received this e-mail from Sarah Riggs Amico’s (D. GA) U.S. Senate campaign:

Team —

The U.S. Postal Service is always there for us when we need it — whether sending a birthday card or casting an absentee ballot. It made my family feel more connected to friends and loved ones when I was growing up in the rural Ozarks.

Now, postal workers are on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic, delivering medications and other desperately needed supplies to those of us who are at home. They’re delivering for us when we need them most, and they deserve our support.

But Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress are refusing to grant the USPS the federal relief funding it needs to remain solvent throughout this crisis. That’s why we’re asking you to add your name to this petition calling on our leaders to grant the USPS relief funding now.

The USPS’s unofficial motto is: “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.” It may not have anticipated the unprecedented challenge we face now, but our postal workers are proving themselves up to the task of keeping our country running at this difficult time. They are heroes.

The USPS handles an astounding 47% of the entire world’s mail. Imagine what would happen if it had to cut back service — the paychecks that would be delayed, the ballots that wouldn’t arrive on time to voters, the stimulus payments that wouldn’t reach families or small businesses who need them. It cannot be allowed to fail.

Support the USPS by signing this petition today to call for emergency relief funding for this critical, frontline service »

Thanks for adding your support. These men and women deliver for us, now we need to deliver for them.

Stay safe,

Sarah
