Senator Jon Tester Meets with Local Postmasters

Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS -

Senator Jon Tester is in Great Falls today to meet with Great Falls Postmasters to discuss the state of our local Postal Service. Senator Tester dropped by Great Falls to listen to the difficulties that face today's Postal Worker. Some issues raised to the Senator were regarding shipping delays due to under funded Post Offices and some closures. Armed with new understanding, Tester plans to go back to Washington and take a good look at the American Postal Service.

"So what do we need to do moving forward? We need to take a look at some of the things that have made a negative hit on the standard delivery and fix them so that it works. You know a lot of folks out there think the postal service has gone the way of the pony express, well it hasn't. It is very important," says Senator Tester.

Also present and learning the Senatorial ropes is newly sworn in Senator John Walsh. According to Senator Tester both he and Senator Walsh plan to fight for the rural Postal Workers which during any Federal cuts tends to be the first to be let go.
