U.S. Postal Service

The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) is an important piece of infrastructure as well as an employer of many Americans. Here are a few of the most common questions my office receives that deal with the U.S. Postal Service:

What are the new postal rates?

As you may know, the prices for many mail services went up on June 30, 2002. To find more information on rates, visit the U.S. Postal Service website.


How can I get information on jobs with the Postal Service?

The Postal Service often has openings throughout the country. 

To get more information on the requirements and application process, visit the U.S. Postal Service website

For information on all Federal job opportunities, visit the Office of Personnel Management's website.


Where is the closest Post Office?

Although it is possible to order stamps and do other postal functions online, there are still some times when you have to visit a Post Office. For example, Post Offices still serve as a registration point for Selective Service and many major Post Offices in larger communities handle Passport applications.

To find your nearest Post Office, visit the Services Locator page at the U.S. Postal Service website.

If you would like my help with a postal issue, please print out my Authorization Form and fax or mail it to my office.
