RICHMOND, Va. — For months, lawmakers have been pushing the U.S. Postal Service to explain why Central Virginia has problems with its mail service.

A new audit is now providing some answers, but concerns remain regarding how quickly issues like late, missing, or even stolen mail will be resolved.

On Tuesday, Virginia Senator Tim Kaine and U.S. Representative Rob Wittman shared their reaction to the audit after they and other Virginia lawmakers pressed for an internal investigation into operations at the USPS Sandston facility, recently converted into one of the nation’s first Regional Processing and Distribution Centers.

“Virginia has been ranked among the poorest in terms of delivery times, late mail, etc., in the last few months, and that certainly matches up with what we’ve been hearing,” Kaine said in a Zoom call with reporters.

“It was rated as one of the bottom 10 facilities across the United States,” Wittman said. “Pretty incredible.”
