Received this e-mail from Governor Steve Bullock’s (D. MT) U.S. Senate campaign:
Millions of Americans depend on the United States Postal Service to deliver essential goods, medicines, mail-in ballots, and more — through rain, sleet, heat, and even a pandemic.
But the coronavirus has hit the USPS hard, and without immediate financial support, it could run out of money soon.
Instead of providing critical funding, Steve Daines and the Republican-controlled Senate are on summer vacation.
Even worse? The conservative mega-donor in charge of the Post Office is slowing down delivery times, cutting postal workers’ hours, and ordering mailboxes removed across the country — including right here in Montana.
Allowing the USPS to fail would threaten the ability of people to safely exercise their constitutional right to vote by mail and get the essential goods they need in this pandemic.
We have to do the right thing and act quickly to save the US Postal Service.
Thanks for raising your voice on this important issue,
— Team Bullock
