When we first reached out to Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson's office last week to discuss the United States Postal Service's study concerning moving some operations from the Dallas Main Post Office to Coppell, we got no response. Then came a brief statement. A few days later, there was this letter Johnson sent to to Marie Therese Dominguez, the USPS's vice president of government relations and public policy. Now, she's moving way up the ladder of command: We just received from her office a letter Johnson sent only today to David C. Williams, the Inspector General of United States Postal Service, in which she calls for an "independent review" of the study being conducted by the Dallas office. As always, it's below in its entirety.
