On Friday (August 10), NALC President Fredric Rolando was quoted extensively in news stories on the Postal Service’s quarterly financial report—for example, in an Associated Press story that was carried in hundreds of newspapers around the country.

On Thursday, NALC Executive Vice President Timothy O’Malley was interviewed on Washington’s Federal News Radio. The timing was excellent—just after the Postal Service gave its financial report for the third quarter of the fiscal year—because O’Malley was able to explain to a large audience of federal agency managers, policy makers and contractors that pre-funding accounts for 80 percent of the red ink so far this fiscal year, and 83 percent overall.

On August 8, Racine, WI’s The Journal Times ran a story about Carrier Alert, the cooperative community service program to monitor the well-being of elderly and disabled mail patrons. And on August 5, writer David  Morris penned a piece for The Huffington Post that revealed some of the hidden motives behind calls for privatizing the Postal Service and explored some solutions to the USPS fiscal crisis.
