This ad, “Michael Bazinet, ” tells the story of a small business owner in Bangor, Maine. Bazinet’s company — Creative Digital Imaging — relies on the critical services of the Eastern Maine processing plant. Bazinet speaks about the impact of reduced services, which would result in lost clients and potential layoffs.
This ad is one of three new television spots that highlight the critical ways America depends on the Postal Service — and the devastating effect closing post offices and mail processing plants would have on our nation. Each of the three 30-second spots illustrates the significant dangers associated with cutting both services and jobs. The three spots will begin airing March 14 on national cable networks and the NBC Nightly News. The ad will run through mid-May, when massive cuts to America’s postal infrastructure will begin to take affect — unless Congress takes action.
