Bring back the letter collection boxes on Maude Ave in Sunnyvale, CA

      Santa Clara, CA

The post office at the crossing of Maude and Mary Avenues in Sunnyvale, CA was closed by USPS. The nearest post office is about 1.5 miles away on Taaffe Street, Sunnyvale.

In these days when everyone is careful about gas price and green house gas, why waste 3 miles of extra driving just to post a letter and buy stamps?

When closing the post office may have been necessitated by cost cutting, there should not be any reason why a stamp vending machine or letter collection boxes (including ExpressMail posting) cannot be established at or near the old location.

We request USPS to bring back the letter collection boxes and a stamp vending machine at or near the now-defunct post office on Maude Ave in Sunnyvale, CA.

      When I started the signature campaign, I did not hope to cross 10 signatures. Little did I knew the cause would get support from as far away place as Germany and UK and the campaign would be supported by people who would never need to use mailboxes or stamp machines on Maude Ave.

      Meanwhile I have been contacted by Sunnyvale Sun (a local newspaper run by Mercury News) for creating a story on this.

      Now that we are inching close to 25 signatures, our goal is to get 100 signatures. This is not as far away as it may look. IF YOU FORWARD THE LINK OF THIS PETITION ( TO 5 OF YOUR FRIENDS AND EVEN 2 OF THEM SIGN UP, THAT WILL tAKE US TO NEARLY 75.

      Will you please? If you are on Facebook or Twitter, will greatly appreciate you forwarding the above link to promote this cause. Or you can use 'Share This Petition' link on the left column on Change.Org.

      Thank you again for supporting the cause.

      This could help the poor and keep more and more people from going poor. The recession we're facing now could go worse than the great depression or be just as bad.

      This is to help with the economic downturn. I have a petition below that’s for the economy and ridiculous gas prices and other things affecting us. Let’s sign mine. I need 1,000 signatures in total.

      We should also take a stand against greed. I blamed it all on high gas prices for driving schools on waiting lists. It's common sense for first time learners for driving to have behind the wheel for car insurance reduction and most important safety of learning.

      We are taking stands against greed as well. You people who signed this petition should sign mine if you haven't. The author of this petition should sign mine on the link as well if haven’t.
