Stockton Postal Facility Closure Delayed


Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Jerry McNerney (CA-11) announced that the U.S. Postal Service processing and distribution facility in Stockton will not be slated for immediate closure. The closure of the facility would result in an estimated 187 jobs being lost in Stockton alone.

“I am glad that the Postal Service has recognized it needs more time to make a responsible decision about closing the Stockton facility. I know they have tough choices to make, and I am glad that they have listened to our concerns and are taking into more serious consideration how their decisions will affect American people and businesses,” said Rep. McNerney.

The announcement today indicated that the USPS would delay closure of any postal facility until at least May 15, 2012. The delay will allow for additional consideration of public commentary, further study of each site, and other solutions to be explored.

“In today’s economy, I am committed to finding ways to create jobs, not to eliminate jobs from our community,” said Rep. McNerney.
