Things go badly at meeting about post office closing

May 7, 2011

As required by law, the Postal Service is holding meetings about the post offices it wants to close.  At a recent meeting in New Hartford, Iowa, where the Postal Service has its eye on several post offices, things didn't go so well.  Confronted by angry citizens opposed to the closure, two "postal service officials abruptly left the gathering at the middle school."  You can read the whole story here, and you can see the TV news video below.
