On Jan. 1, 2012, South Dakota Newspaper Association initiated a campaign to rally supportamong South Dakotans for timely, six-day mail delivery. We called the campaign “Deliver theMail.” We started the grassroots campaign because we wanted to demonstrate to U.S. PostalService officials, to members of our Congressional delegation and to others that SouthDakotans value and care deeply about good, reliable six-day-a-week mail service.And South Dakotans responded.The following pages include the names of South Dakotans who took the time to stop by their local newspaper office to sign a “Deliver the Mail” petition or went online towww.deliverthemail.orgto sign. The result in less than two months was that 2,598 peopletook it upon themselves to sign this petition.Just as important as the signatures themselves, are the unfiltered comments provided byhundreds of petitioners. Comments that demonstrate how much South Dakotans depend ongood, timely mail delivery in their personal lives and in their business and professional livesand how strongly they feel about ensuring that timely, six-day mail delivery continues inSouth Dakota.One theme resonated throughout these comments: South Dakotans oppose the proposedwholesale consolidation and closure of mail processing centers in our state and thediscontinuation of Saturday mail delivery. Our state would suffer. Our economy would suffer.South Dakotans who depend on timely mail delivery for medical prescriptions, business mail,news, legal documents and much more would be negatively affected.South Dakota Newspaper Association opposes the elimination of Saturday mail delivery.SDNA also opposes the wholesale closure of mail processing centers throughout the state.We realize that the U.S. Postal Service must seek reforms and efficiencies if it is to survive.But first, we ask that more consideration be given to what South Dakotans are saying beforeany final decisions are made.Sincerely,SDNA Board of Directors and the 130 member newspapers
