100s turn out to oppose proposed postal service closing

BOARDMAN

Local political representatives, U.S. Postal Service employees and Mahoning Valley residents attended a public meeting to oppose the closing of the Youngstown mail-processing and distribution center.

Wednesday evening’s meeting at Boardman High School’s Performing Arts Center gave dozens of people in a crowd of several hundred the opportunity to voice their concerns about the proposed combining of the Youngstown facility with one in Pittsburgh.

The postal service previously had selected the Youngstown facility, along with 251 others nationwide, to close as part of a restructuring effort.

The Youngstown processing and distribution center, home to about 500 employees, could have closed as early as March, but pressure from Congress prompted a moratorium on post-office terminations, Dominic Corso, president of American Postal Workers’ Union Local 443 has said.

State Sen. Joe Schiavoni of Canfield, D-33rd, said he came to the meeting to hear the postal service’s reasoning behind the proposed closure.
