The Smith family is now taking up this fight, and not just for Zach and the Hornell Post Office. They’ve enlisted the help of Senators Kirsten Gillibrand and Charles Schumer as well as their local Representative Tom Reed.
On Tuesday Chris Smith made the rounds at some local radio stations and urged others to sign this online petition. The hopes is that new legislation will compel or require the U.S. Post Office to change its policy as it pertains to displaying the names of those whom Post Offices are dedicated.
On 95.1-FM The Brew the Smith family finds a prominent liberal voice in Brother Wease who is joining them in their efforts.
"This is ridiculous and it's too bad everyone has to waste energy because it shouldn't have to be," Brother Wease said. “Let's get a sign up and name it after Zach, what lip service are they doing by just saying it is? Let's do it, let's follow through."
