EASTON, Md. - Maryland's senators are demanding a halt to any study by the Postal Service involving the closing of the distribution center in Easton and moving mail processing to Wilmington, Del.
In a letter dated Thursday to the Postmaster General, Democratic Sens. Barbara Mikulski and Ben Cardin said the call for a new study lacks transparency and disregards public input. They said such a move would delay the delivery of mail to more than half a million residents on the Eastern Shore.
Mikulski and Cardin also said the move would not likely result in cost savings.
