Letter: We Should Listen to Strasser

Share this article:
When an individual of Dick Strasser's commitment to excellence in mail delivery points out what the pending postal reform legislation will do to the U.S. Postal Service, we should all pay attention ("Fuel Costs Force January Rate Hike; Reform Bills 'Disastrous,' USPS' CFO Says," Aug. 22).


His experience at all levels in the USPS, and especially from where he has sat for the past few years, gives him a powerful position from which to speak.


Often, seeing things from within an organization is very different than seeing from without. The last thing any well-intentioned politician or mailer wants to do is make postal service employees less responsive. If Dick Strasser says it won't work, we should all listen.
