Norcross Joins Rally To Save The Post Office In Bellmawr
August 19, 2020
BELLMAWR, NJ —Rep. Donald Norcross and Camden County Freeholder Melinda Kane joined current and retired postal workers, union leaders and local officials for a rally outside the United States Postal Service (USPS) distribution center in Bellmawr on Tuesday.
The goal of the rally was to “highlight the urgent need to protect the Postal Service,” Norcross said.
“‘To inform and connect’ — that was the intent of our Founding Fathers when they enshrined the Postal Service in our Constitution,” Norcross said. “It is a pillar of our democracy, and today it is more essential than ever, as millions of Americans rely on the Postal Service each day during this pandemic to safely receive prescription medication, Social Security benefits, paychecks, tax refunds and vote-by-mail ballots in a timely manner. With the lives and livelihoods of Americans around the nation at stake, the President’s attempts to undermine our democracy will not go unchallenged. I will work with my colleagues in the House this week to pass legislation, protecting the Postal Service from this Administration’s dangerous campaign to sabotage it and disenfranchise voters.”
