Residents turned out and gathered as one to support the cause of keeping the Roselle Park Post Office open. In spite of the cold, a crowd rallied in front of post office located on the corner of Grant Avenue and Chestnut Street. They held up signs that read ‘Save Our Post Office’ and chanted “0-7-2-0-4! Don’t close our doors!” to rally against the United States Postal Service’s (USPS) plan to close the borough’s only post office.
Passing cars honked their horns in support of the rally which started at around 6 p.m. Also on hand to cover the event were Eyewitness News (WABC-TV), New Jersey 12 News, and the Star-Ledger.
In addition to notable residents who were at the rally such as Borough Historian Pat Pagnetti and Patricia Butler, Mayor Joseph Accardi, Council-At-Large Carl Hokanson, 1st Ward Councilman-Elect Andrew Casais, 2nd Ward Councilman Marc Caswell, 3rd Ward Councilwoman Tanya Torres, 4th Ward Councilman Michael Yakubov, BOE member Alex Balaban, and former Mayor Joe DeIorio were also in attendance.
