The Forever Stamp: Forever Rewarding Consumers

Some of you may have read about the creation of the country's first "forever" stamp, good at face value for first-class postage after purchase even if, and when, rates go up.

The idea was originated and pushed to fruition by one of the country's most stalwart consumer advocates - - Ruth Goldway - - who is also the former Mayor of Santa Monica, CA, and a friend and ally going back to the early 70's.

Ruth is a perfect example of what it means to be a life-long political activist with a set of core values and goals - - in this case, making the huge and impersonal US Postal Service become a more customer-friendly operation.

Congratulations to Ruth Goldway.
