Weigh In

Editor’s note:

The County Press is asking area business people and professionals to “Weigh In” with your answers to our weekly Weigh In question.

The question will be printed in the Sunday edition, while your replies (via e-mail) will be published in Wednesday’s paper.

Like a letter to the editor, we will publish your responses if you give us your name and hometown.

This week’s question:

The U.S. Postal Service is facing its own fiscal cliff this spring.

But it is in danger of being overshadowed by bigger fiscal issues facing the nation.

For the cashstrapped U.S. Postal Service, the cost of being ignored by Congress means that it will be on the brink of bankruptcy. For the Lapeer County public, it could result in cutbacks on mail delivery. For postal employees, job cuts.

Should the postal service be privatized?

E-mail your comments to editor@mi homepaper.com or jhogan@ mihome paper.com.
