During the virtual discussion, Kaine encouraged more people to speak out on the issues they face.
“What we need to do is to guarantee the continuity of post office operations for a whole series of reasons, the election is just one, topics you’ve written into me about cover everything from medications to receive your social security checks and other very important items,” said Senator Kaine.
