"We have a universal responsibility to provide universal service to every American citizen, and we want to continue doing that in the most cost-effective way," Welch said. "Like the Grange, we've been around for a long time and, with the help of these legislative changes and our continued commitment internally, we look forward to continuing to serve your needs no matter what they are and no matter where they are for another 200 years."
National Grange Legislative Director Nicole Palya Wood responded to Welch's comments by highlighting the National Grange's role early on in the battle for Rural Free Delivery and recognized that the preservation of the U.S. Postal Service is a top priority.
"The National Grange is committed to working with and advocating for the USPS as they pursue legislative reforms to become more financially autonomous and competitive in an evolving marketplace,"
