August 18, 2020
Press Release

PHILADELPHIA (Aug. 18, 2020) – Congressman Dwight Evans (PA-03) will visit four Post Office locations along with affected Philadelphia residents in his fight to save the U.S. Postal Service from the egregious and admitted attacks by the president. 

Philadelphia is the birthplace of America’s democracy.  It’s where the Constitution was written, and the Postal Service is mentioned in that Constitution. Philadelphians – who use the Postal Service for safely voting by mail, receiving medication in a timely manner, and more – are frustrated by its dismantling, and Congressman Evans will do everything he can to amplify their voices.

The tour will begin at 10:30am at the East Germantown Station Post Office (2031 66th Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19138). Followed by an 11:15am visit to the Wyncote Post Office (207 Glenside Ave Wyncote, PA 19095) where Congressman Evans will be joined by Democratic colleague Congresswoman Madeleine Dean and retired Postal worker Clay Smith.

At 12 noon, the Congressman will head to the Greene St Post Office (5209 Greene St, Philadelphia, PA 19144); and will conclude the tour at the West Park/Freeman Hankins Post Office (5300 Jefferson St, Philadelphia, PA 19131).  At both locations, he will be meeting with Philadelphia residents who have been affected by the Trump Administration’s dismantling of the Postal Service.

Evans represents Pennsylvania’s 3rd Congressional District, which includes Northwest and West Philadelphia and parts of North, South, Southwest and Center City Philadelphia.
