BERKELEY (KCBS) – Consumer advocate Ralph Nader is trying to use his influence to persuade the U.S. Postal Service to not close Berkeley’s Main Post Office.
About 200 people gathered at the Berkeley Main Post Office on Tuesday. Nader said it’s important to prevent the USPS from shutting a building that is on the National Register of Historic Places.
“This is not just a matter of stamps or delivery on Saturday, as important as that is,” he told the crowd. “This is a fundamental institution that binds the country together.”
