We hear from our friend Kate Schuman on Shaw…

You don’t hear much about Shaw Island in the daily buzz of the San Juans, but the recent barrage of changes being implemented nationwide at the U.S. Postal Service has many Shaw residents alarmed and wanting to do something about it.

Shaw Islander John Peinert organized a rally, and Monday morning approximately twenty residents gathered in the parking lot of the Shaw Post Office to show support for the U.S. Postal Service.  (That’s about 10% of Shaw’s population!)  Many carried signs, all wore masks, and ideas were shared on how best to get their voices of protest heard.  The greatest shared concern is the potential damage to the voting process for the general election in November. 

The ideas brought up:  Write or call our state and national representatives, write to the U.S.P.S. Board of Governors, put together a press release for local papers, buy a sheet of stamps, and take the Postcard Challenge to send 10 postcards in 30 days.  Contact information for the USPS BoG and state and national representatives can be found online.
