KEEP THOSE CARDS AND LETTERS COMING (thru Tucson): Five Arizona Lawmakers Ask New Postmaster General To Reconsider Closing Tucson's Mail Processing Facility

There's a new USPS Postmaster General, which Arizona's lawmakers see as an opportunity to try to keep Tucson's Cherrybell mail processing center open.

In a letter today penned by Rep. Martha McSally's office and co-signed by four other Arizona Representatives - Democrats Raul Grijalva, Kyrsten Sinema and Ann Kirkpatrick, as well as Republican Trent Franks - Arizona pleads for reconsideration of the decision to leave all of Arizona with just one processing and distribution center while much smaller states "such as Vermont and New Hampshire" will continue to have two such centers.

The closure has been in the works since 2011.  New Postmaster General Megan Brennan took the leadership position on February 1, offering "a fresh start and a chance to review, and if necessary, (to) reverse prior decisions that no longer make sense."
