Resilience By Marsha Danzy Central Valley, CA, Branch 197 Treasurer and Postmaster of Victor
When the clock struck midnight on Wednesday, Jan. 1, 2020, no one could have anticipated all the challenges we would confront in the new year. The COVID-19 pandemic, protests and civil unrest, elections, voting and a changing of the guard at USPS Headquarters are just a partial list. It has been an overwhelming set of circumstances in which we found ourselves and continue to navigate.
In spite of all these challenges, USPS employees—craft and managers—have shown great resilience in dealing with all the issues at hand. As we enter peak season, along with the presidential election, even more time will be focused on providing the best service to the American public.
With everything many Americans have endured this year—layoffs, illness or loss of loved ones—the Postal Service offers security to the public in knowing we always will be available to deliver, whether it’s essential items, a get-well card or just being available to have a conversation with a senior who may be homebound.
Let’s do what we do every day: Provide great service to the American public.
