Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., is holding a meeting this Sunday to ask Vermonters what they think of closing some post offices and possibly eliminating Saturday mail delivery, proposals on the table from the U.S. Postal Service.This is an important issue for Ripton, being both somewhat isolated, and having experienced the near-killing of our post office.
Sanders will be offering free lunch, as is his style, particularly when he’s campaigning for re-election, as he is.
The meeting is at 1 p.m. Sunday at Montpelier High School. The free lunch starts at noon. For information, call his office at (800) 339-9834.
