Letter: No response

December 21, 2012


To the editor:

On Nov. 3, the U.S. Postal Service conducted a meeting in Lecompton to discuss and answer questions relative to the Lecompton post office.

Present at the meeting were representatives of Gov. Brownback, Sens. Roberts and Moran, and Rep. Jenkins, along with state Sens. Hensley and Francisco, state Rep. Tom Sloan and 100 Lecompton residents.

The two USPS representatives could not answer the many questions asked by those present. Kevin Billings, USPS operations manager, said he would have Richard Watkins, USPS corporate communications representative, contact the City of Lecompton to answer the many unanswered questions.

As of Dec. 17, no further communications have been received.

One must assume that USPS not only has no respect for the residents of the Lecompton-Big Springs-Stull area but also no respect for any of our state and federal elected officials.

They have no respect for anyone. That is one reason we lost most of our post office. When a comment was made about the Postmistress of Perry, whose post office received the majority of benefits from the Lecompton post office, she turned red and would not answer. The meeting was a joke. Although a few of us stood up for our rights, they would not answer any questions. Their wiggle out line was that the meeting was only to decide what hours what is left of our post office would be open. I expect us to lose it in the next round of cuts. Mismanagement, and Saturday delivery, are two reasons why the postal service is losing millions of dollars. I was told Saturday delivery was mandated by federal law. So change the damn law USPS !!

Get over it already and stop whining, LeCompton. There's another post office close by and you just need to deal with reality.
