Re: Docket No. R2009-3
Dear Chairman Blair,
I am writing to express my personal support and that of (NAME OF COMPANY) for the Postal Service’s proposed Summer Sale Program, Docket R2009-3. I urge the Postal Regulatory Commission to move expeditiously in endorsing the program as presented by the Postal Service.
The impact of the economic downturn on the Service’s current financial situation, which has been well documented at Congressional hearings and in the press, is a reflection of conditions throughout the mailing community. The Summer Sale proposed by the Postal Service provides a thoughtful and unique opportunity without an infusion of tax dollars to stimulate this important segment of our nation’s economy.
Our company plans to avail itself of this opportunity. We are currently in the process of determining the amount of additional volume we will be sending through the Postal Service and are in discussions with our suppliers and service providers regarding our plans as we prepare to order supplies and products to increase our mail volume. We do not have the luxury to wait if we want to take advantage of even part of the summer sale.
[NAME OF COMPANY] enthusiastically endorses the Summer Sale Program as proposed and urges the Commission to endorse the Summer Sale as submitted since many mailers have begun ordering supplies and product to take advantage of it. Please include this letter in the public record for Docket No. R2009-3.
