BURNS & POE JOIN UNITED STATES POSTAL SERVICE STAFFERS
TO REINFORCE “I NEED A JOB” SENTIMENT
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (September 28, 2011)–
In learning via an early morning newscast about the plight of the United States Postal Service workers and their plan to rally nationwide with the hope to save their jobs,Burns & Poe (Keith Burns/Michelle Poe) was moved to lend its voice in their plea.
Postal workers across the country rallied yesterday at various locations with the objective to be heard--sending a message that cutting jobs isn't the answer to solving the budget crisis and that other avenues need to be exhausted before resorting to U.S.P.S job losses. The postal service is currently contemplating the close of thousands of post offices, which would leave more than 100,000 workers without jobs.
In an impromptu appearance to support their cause, Keith Burns appeared at the rally held on Church Street in Nashville, in front of Representative Jim Cooper’s office, to make introductions with postal workers while offering words of encouragement and sharing the sentiment of Burns & Poe’s new and timely single, “I Need A Job.” The song (penned by Burns and John Ritter/Blue Steel Records) speaks on behalf of those who are affected by unemployment and simply want and need to work (not only to make ends meet and feed their families, but to feel a sense of self worth). “I Need A Job” is currently at radio.
The “better half” of Burns & Poe, Michelle Poe, was unable to attend due to her commitment to her own second job.

But these additional texts and tweets have given us additional insight," FBI Special Agent Stephen Emmett told "Good Morning America" today. " We are concerned and feel that they are going to continue and cause problems to say the least for law enforcement." Ryan Dougherty, 21; his sister Lee Grace E. Dougherty, 29; and half-brother Dylan Dougherty Stanley, 26, have been on the lam since Aug. 2 when they shot at a police officer attempting to pull their white Subaru Impreza over for speeding.
