Raizk, Brown suggest postal center move to Wilmington

Wilmington News Journal – The U.S. Postal Service has announced plans to close the mail transport service center in Jeffersonville, but U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown is urging either a reversal of that decision or consideration of an alternate proposal of relocating to the Wilmington Air Park.

Brown made the request in a letter to John E. Potter, postmaster general and CEO of the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) in Washington, D.C.
