USPS Roanoke operations expected to begin move to N.C. on Saturday » Ruralinfo.net Postal News

Beginning Saturday, some of the processing center equipment will be taken down and moved to an existing facility in Greensboro, and mail will cease to have a Roanoke postmark. All mail sent from Roanoke ZIP codes will go to Greensboro first.

“We are not anticipating any delays in delivery for Roanoke customers,” USPS spokesman Tad Kelley in an email.

But Carlton Cooper, president of the local chapter of the American Postal Workers Union, believes that this move will slow down mail in the Roanoke Valley by up to 10 to 12 days for first-class mail.

“We don’t think they can do it,” he said. “We know from talking to employees in Greensboro, they are not ready to handle it.”

New head of stamp services to be named soon – Linns.com.

Mary-Anne Penner, a career postal employee and former stamp development manager, is expected to be named acting executive director of stamp services for the United States Postal Service, two sources have told Linn’s Stamp News.

Postmaster General Megan Brennan informed members of the Citizens’ Stamp Advisory Committee of Penner’s selection during the panel’s meetings April 9-10, the sources said.

Penner will replace Cindy Tackett, also a career postal worker, who has served as acting director of stamp services for several months after the last stamp director, Susan McGowan, was moved to another assignment at Postal Service headquarters.

Asked to comment, David Partenheimer, Postal Service spokesman said: “At this time we have not made an official announcement regarding the future leadership of Stamp Services.”
