City Councilwoman Clarke leads protest against plan to close 8 Baltimore post offices (access required)

This week, City Councilwoman Mary Pat Clarke led a protest to try and halt a plan to close eight Baltimore post offices, now under review by the U.S. Postal Service. The feds say there is a pressing need to stop red ink in the postal system by closing up to 3,200 post offices nationwide — 41 in Maryland. Clarke held the protest to try to halt closing the Waverly post office, at 3000 Homewood Ave., in her 14th District. There, more than 52,000 locals are served, Clarke said. She wants to send the review process back to sender to identify other post offices that could be closed, sparing Baltimore’s locations that, besides Waverly, are: •    Carroll — 340 South Loudon Ave., zip code: 21229 •    Clifton East End — 4200 Shannon Dr., zip code: 21213 •    Druid — 1826 Pennsylvania Ave., zip code: 21217 •    Franklin — 2401 Ashton St., zip code: 21223 •    Hamilton — 4901Harford Rd., zip code: 21214 •    Market Center — 130 North Greene St., zip code: 21201 •    Walbrook — 1908 North Ellamont St., zip code: 21216
