Postal Authorities Considering Closing Turley Post Office, meeting with public Thursday May 5 from noon to 2 pm at the post office

We have petitions at the Center for people to sign protesting the looking into closing of turley post office and moving services to Apache Street Northside Station. We will present these at the thursday meeting at the post office.

We believe:
It is not right to close the post office in our area where we have the poor and the elderly without the means to get four miles away to the other post service; do it where this is possible,
It is not right where they are not the ones with computers and internet service as an alternative which is the reason the postal service says volume is down; do it where computers are prevalent,
It is not right because where volume is down here it is because the hours of service have been being cut over the years making it difficult to people to use the existing location,
It is not right because the people in this area do not have access or means to an alternative like fedex or ups offices as they do in other parts of the Tulsa area.

Let your federal official representatives know how you feel about this. Contact information through their websites Rep. John Sullivan, Senator Tom Coburn and Senator Jim Inhofe and ask them to do the right thing and keep the post office open where it is needed the most, which is what government resources are meant to do, filling in the gaps.

Stay tuned for news of organizing and protesting meetings and exploring options.
