Valley Post Office To Remain Open

The good news...the Valley Station post office will remain open.
The bad news...Councilman Doug Hawkins takes credit.

Watch him strain to pat himself on the back:

Valley Station Post Office
Will Remain Open
We Won!

The day after Councilman Doug Hawkins and Brenda Silveria hand delivered petitions with over 2000 signatures to the postmaster, the spokesman for the post office issued a press release announcing that the Valley Station Post Office will continue serving the Valley Station area by keeping the post office open. Hawkins and Silveria appreciate Postmaster Curtsinger accepting the petitions and listening to the community’s request on keeping the post office open at its currently location on Dixie Highway..
“The Valley Station Post Office is no longer on the chopping block,” says Hawkins. On July 31, the post office listed four branches that were going to be considered for “consolidation or closure.” Brenda Silveria led a grassroots effort collecting signatures to let the decision makers know how much the community needs a post office.
Councilman Hawkins wishes to thank everyone who visited the “Call for Action” page at and signed the on-line petition. Councilman Hawkins also thanks Postmaster Curtsinger for working with him and Ms. Silveria.
Please continue supporting the Valley Station Post Office by using the facility and the many services they offer.
