Letter to the Editor: Make cuts at Washington Postal Service offices

Dear Editor:

In reference to the Dec. 7, 2012 letter of the Assistant Postplan Coordinator addressed to “Dear Customer,” they listed four alternative options of which I only have the privilege of choosing one.

“Section 4 requests comments.”

As both Winkelman and Hayden Post Offices are small and low cost, managed by a minimal staff of very dedicated professional and very loyal people that do an excellent and efficient job, I suggest you eliminate all four of your suggested options and add a fifth option.

Option 5 should read: Do nothing, leave the low cost, high efficiency postal operation alone and focus all cost cutting and reductions on the over-staffed and wasteful Washington D.C. Postal Headquarters.

Send your efficiency experts and auditors out to make a study as to why such a few loyal and dedicated employees in old, low cost buildings can do so much with so little and provide a good service with happy customers.

Therefore, I choose to mark Option 5! If you need further assistance, please check with UPS or FEDEX, who have made millions doing what the Washington D.C. Postal Service is losing millions at.

Kind regards,

L.S. Jake Jacobson

P.O. Drawer I
