Once again, our Black community is going to suffer with the possible closing of five central city post offices.
The Question: What do you think we can do about this? And, what type of changes will we have to make as a communitty if this happens?
Oshi Adelabu: “Stop paying bills online and use the Post Office. That is my practice because I want to try and keep people employed.”
Shirley Franklin: “Closing our Post Office will cause people to drive to Brookfield to mail packages. Our seniors may not have access to transportation or on-line access to pay bills.With the closings we wil have to make special arrangements just to mail a package.”
Nikeya Brown: “This is one more blow to central city residents; one more resource that will be absent from our community.”
Aristede Bratchett: “It will be very hard for seniors to mail letters and packages or have a post office box. And the community would have to adapt to harder times.”
