Portland postal fightback media coverage

On local TV:

KPTV - FOX 12


 From the NW Labor Press:

As the Christmas mailing season picks up, postal customers at Portland’s Main Post Office downtown were  greeted Nov. 30 by holiday-themed balloons, streamers and signs decorating the front windows — “Save Santa’s Post Office!” “We Wish You 6-Day Delivery and a Happy New Year” and “Deck the Mails with More Mail Carriers.” Postal “elves” in Santa hats also were there agitating about irregular, late, and after dark delivery in the Portland area.

“Santa’s worried that the lame duck will cripple the postal eagle,” smiled Jamie Partridge, a retired member of the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) Branch 82-turned elf. “Just when little Virginias all over the country are depending on the post office to prove there is a Santa, the lame-duck Congress is preparing to gut the service.”
