GORDON, Wis. — Several dozen people turned out for a rally on Thursday pushing for the post office to stay open in Gordon, Wisconsin.
Residents organized the event and say that losing the building will hurt those who already travel to the Gordon post office for their mail if it’s not delivered to their homes.
They say those people will now have to head over to to the post office in Solon Springs, which is a 20-minute round-trip drive from the one in Gordon, but it could be a longer trip for others.
Those in Gordon say they found out about their post office closing less than a month ago.
A change.org petition has more than 700 signatures as of Thursday evening, which will be sent to representatives on the federal level on Friday.
