Postal closing could hurt Jenkins

To whom it may concern:

We were stunned to learn that the U.S. Postal Service was considering closing the Pikeville, Ky. mail processing center and relocating it to Charleston, West Virginia.

This is not acceptable for our City of Jenkins, Ky. As a rural city we have for years and years enjoyed the excellent and timely service of our local postal service. There are so many things we are not privileged to in the mountains, yet we continue to rise above all expectations, however this is insurmountable, even with our determination.

As Mayor it is my responsibility to protect the services of our citizens. Over the years our city has enjoyed the dependency and reliability of our local post office. It is no secret that the Pikeville Processing Center is the backbone of this service. You must rethink this while considering the services and economic value for our region. G.C. KINCER Mayor City of Jenkins
