Vermont rally planned to support six-day mail delivery
SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Vermonters concerned about the Postal Service's plans to end Saturday mail delivery are holding a rally in South Burlington.
The rally is planned for Sunday afternoon.
U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy and Rep. Peter Welch are expected to attend.
The rally is being organized by the Vermont chapter of the National Association of Letter Carriers, which supports six-day mail service.
The chapter says many Americans, especially small-business owners, senior citizens and rural residents would suffer if Saturday service is cut.
The letter carriers say they have other ideas for raising revenue so that the Saturday service can continue.
