Congressmen criticize ‘logjams’ at Richmond USPS facility
HENRICO COUNTY, Va. — Elected officials continue to hear from constituents frustrated by late or undelivered mail persisting after the holidays.
U.S. Rep. Donald McEachin (D-4th District) told reporters Thursday morning the region continued to face widespread issues with mail delays from the United States Postal Service.
“My constituents have felt these effects. In less than 48 hours, we got more than 8,000 complaints about already unreliable mail service deteriorating further, including instances with priority mail such as bills and prescription medications being delivered weeks late,” said McEachin.
Rep. McEachin represents Virginia’s 4th Congressional District which includes the Richmond Processing and Distribution Center located in Sandston. That facility has been criticized as the source of many of the issues, according to lawmakers.
