“This morn­ing, Sun­day, August 23rd, 2020, Fri­day Har­bor res­i­dents turned out to show sup­port for fund­ing for the USPS, and to protest any attempt by the Trump admin­is­tra­tion to rig the 2020 elec­tions through mail and elec­tion tampering.
 
Yes­ter­day the House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives passed leg­is­la­tion to pro­vide $25 bil­lion in fund­ing ahead of an expect­ed surge in mail-in bal­lots in Novem­ber. Twen­ty-four Repub­li­cans crossed the aisle to vote with Democ­rats in a 257–150 vote, illus­trat­ing bi-par­ti­san sup­port for the USPS.
 
Mitch McConnell has stat­ed pub­licly that the leg­is­la­tion won’t pass in the Sen­ate. How­ev­er the House vote proves that Sen­ate Repub­li­cans are vul­ner­a­ble on this issue, and that pub­lic pres­sure could swing the vote to pro­tect both the USPS and the elections.
 
Send this image and mes­sage to your friends, fam­i­ly and fb friends, and encour­age them to make their own pho­tos to post and send. For­ward it to your elect­ed rep­re­sen­ta­tives and those Sen­a­tors in swing states so that they feel the heat now when it counts. We can do this.”
