Postal Officials offer no explanation for walking out of ‘bad meeting.’
Possible post office closures in Northeast Iowa aren’t sitting well with residents in targeted towns.
At times, passions have erupted during heated debates. Discussions Wednesday night in New Hartford reached the boiling point, according to participants, and two postal service officials abruptly left the gathering at the middle school.”They just walked out on us. They didn’t even give us the courtesy of answering our questions,” said Sue Nickalaus, who attended. “… They didn’t even care what we wanted to say.”
Thomas Allen is manager of post office operations for the Hawkeye District, which covers most of Iowa. He hosted the event in New Hartford along with Sarah Lindauer, a post office review investigator for the district. Allen offered no explanation why he and Lindauer left the New Hartford meeting without officially closing the proceedings. He did say it was a “bad meeting” and futile to continue.
