Wyoming Governor Matt Mead said in a media release issued Tuesday that he'll continue to push to prevent the closing of rural post offices in Wyoming.

Mead originally sent a letter to the USPS in August expressing his concern over the issue.

Mead said that he recognizes that the USPS needs to make cuts to remain viable, but that he hopes that they will look at other ideas for a possible solution.

Mead also pointed out that many rural residents do not have reliable access to the Internet for communication making the Postal Service even more important.

The USPS has listed 43 post offices in the state that could potentially be shut down.
