Congressman Huffman Slams USPS for Lack of Transparency on Proposed Petaluma, Eureka Postal Facility Closures

“I am frustrated at the Postal Service’s lack of transparency throughout this process, disregard for public input, and ambivalence to the impacts reduced service standards will have on local communities,” Huffman wrote. “It has come to my attention that the USPS declined to meet with local leaders from my district stating that the decision is final and there is nothing more to discuss, when just the month prior I was personally assured that the process was ongoing and no final decision had been made.”

It’s sad when a communications organization has trouble communicating with their customers to this degree.  On the flip side though, and something I am thinking the Congressman fails to recognize, entering into “negotiations”, and meeting with an organization who is not listening and has no intention of compromising, is a complete waste of everyone’s time anyway.
