Residents in Haverstraw are hoping the testimony from the post master general won't effect their service.
Emily Dominguez, deputy mayor of the village of Haverstraw, says the village hasn't seen any issues like delays, staff shortages and service changes as of yet. The deputy mayor says the post office is the thread that helps weave the community together.
"We have a heavy Hispanic population here so they're either coming from the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico...," says Dominguez. "So they're really counting on the post office to deliver those packages to them or for them to send those packages here."
Older adults are also a concern. Dominguez says seniors look for letter, bills and packages in their mailboxes.
The village mayor says a rally in support of the USPS will be held Saturday at 10 a.m.
