They marched and chanted in a circle outside the Imperial Beach Post Office Monday.
“Hey! Hey! The Postal Service has to stay!”
About two dozen Imperial Beach residents and union members are afraid the United States Postal Service will eventually close the only post office in IB. Local American Postal Workers Union President Bob Waterhouse said he sees the writing on the wall.
“It’s almost like I can see somebody pushing a boulder towards a cliff and I’m telling you, he’s going to push it over the cliff,” said Waterhouse.
That was his metaphor for U.S. Postmaster General Louis DeJoy. Waterhouse believed DeJoy rewrote the USPS rule book, the PO 408, to give him the power to close post offices as he sees fit.
