Rahall meets with postmasters


— In his Capitol Hill office, U.S. Rep. Nick Rahall earlier this month met with West Virginia representatives of the National Association of Postmasters of the United States to discuss recent legislation he has co-sponsored to help ensure the long-term fiscal solvency of the Postal Service.

“Our goal should be to increase the profitability and competitiveness of the Postal Service by improving and modernizing its services, rather than cutting off rural customers.  The measure I have co-sponsored would simultaneously bolster the long-term solvency of the Postal Service, while protecting mail delivery in West Virginia,” said Rahall, who has been active and vocal in opposing the Postal Service’s efforts to close and consolidate postal facilities in West Virginia.

Among those meeting with Rahall was Herb Balser, second from left, of Oak Hill.
