Letter: Here's One Thing USPS, Mailers Can Agree On

Share this article:
I know how ludicrous this attempt is to stop advertisement mail ("Associations Act to Defend Direct Mail," Nov. 10). I strongly suggest that [the Direct Marketing Association] as well as others argue the economic impact both on your companies and the U.S. Postal Service.


The number of lost jobs in the postcom sector would be tremendous. The price of postage would rise dramatically to offset the loss of this revenue.


This just goes to show that these individuals who are promoting a do-not-mail registry are very shortsighted.


Garry S. Smith, Postmaster, St. John, IN
