To The Daily Sun,
In the past week there was a mail carrier in Meriden who was charged with stealing mail, it was videotaped on Channel 9 news. However, one of our local radio stations announced that the culprit was a Tim Smith from Meredith. If you saw the video, you would see that they look nothing alike. If you listened to the radio you may think that Tim Smith was the culprit. Her name was Kim Smith, no relation.
In a unfunny ironic twist there is a Tim Smith working at the Meredith Post Office. Unfortunately some of the customers that Tim services, and other patrons in the Meredith area heard this on the radio. I would like to tell all of you that there is not a more contentious, caring carrier in the Post Office anywhere. Having worked with Tim for nearly 20 years at the Meredith P.O., I can honestly say that I would trust Tim above any other carrier that I know.
I am writing this letter in support of Tim. I did not hear the blurb on the radio. I heard it through the grapevine.
When I talked to Tim I was informed he could not talk about the situation, the Postal Service was handling things. I would like to say loudly that my wife and I have nearly 60 years of postal service between us. We do not trust the Postal Service to do the right thing in this case. As far as they are concerned no news, is good news. Keeping these things quiet is their way. If the Meredith postmaster had any grapes at all he would stand up to the morons in charge and defend his carrier.
The Pulse also owes Tim a great big apology for spewing false information. Feel lucky. If you did that garbage to me or mine, we would meet in court for defamation of character. There was an article in the Union Leader that gave all the correct info, Channel 9 did an update. When is the P.O. going to do the right thing and put the word out about the mistake? Probably never, they are too busy overpaying the multitude of mangers and not hiring people who actually work for a living. I do not wonder why the P.O. loses money every year, I know.
