HOW YOU CAN HELP!
The Time is NOW to Make Your Voices Heard and SEEN again!
We expect there are ongoing USPS discussions underway about this project and we therefore must seize this moment to reiterate the critical need to proceed with the Mesa Park Interim PO project without delay!
As you did brilliantly before, we need you to once again make your input VISIBLY in the form of letters and postcards.
Your voices are absolutely crucial at this time!! USPS and Huffman’s office have told us that your letters are very impactful!
We are gathering as many letters as possible by midday Tuesday. so we can hand them off to Congressman Huffman’s office Tuesday afternoon. They will deliver them to the USPS office this week. We know its a holiday weekend but what better way to celebrate LABOR DAY than to do some community service?!
We hope these options make it SUPER EASY to do the right thing in as little as 10 mins:
WRITE +SIGN letters and postcards as part of your Labor Day celebration.
Include “talking points” - see examples below if helpful
We will add the address labels, stamps, and even envelopes if needed.
Drop them off at the Bo PO table at Labor Day celebration downtown Monday, in mail slot at BCPUD, or in the box at John Borgs barn.
Monday LABOR DAY- We will have a Bo PO table downtown with letter writing supplies, address labels and bullet points on a sign
Encourage others to contribute to the town goal of “100+ letters + postcards by midday Tuesday”…Definitely ambitious in 2 days, but we are confident in the Bolinas culture of “many hands make light work” and the “for the good of the whole”.
If aligned with your thoughts, here is a possible BRIEF LETTER:
We urge you to proceed without delay to install the Interim Post Office at Mesa Park.
USPS helped develop and has approved this plan and it is ready to go!
There are no other near term options and the lack of a PO in town continues to cause great hardship.
The USPS is currently NOT meeting its obligations to the town of Bolinas.
PLEASE “DELIVER” on our Interim PO Mesa Park plan !!
If aligned with your thoughts, here are other possible talking points that might be helpful:
We in Bolinas are still badly in need of having our full-service physical Post Office returned to town. The current bandaid services are completely inadequate in meetings USPS obligations to the town of Bolinas citizens.
I urge you to support the installation of the Mesa Park Interim Post Office without further delay. No other proposed options will serve the community’s PO needs.
The Olema PO is NOT an interim solution because: a) the Olema PO site has inadequate space, b) is not reachable by the many non-driving Bolinas citizens and has no public transportation option, c) is not truly ADA accessible, and d) is very prone to flooding.
The lack of a PO in Bolinas for over 180 days has caused great hardship to our community including: compromised healthcare, failed medication delivery, lost and late checks, lost and late payments, loss of business services, lost and returned packages, inability to access mail for our many citizens without transportation.
