Government officials speak out on Brainerd mail delivery issues

Eighth Congressional District Rep. Pete Stauber said Thursday he received a number of calls from those concerned about delays in their mail delivery from the U.S. Postal Service.

“There was a constituent from Brainerd who didn’t get the mail to her house for over three weeks,” Stauber said by phone from Washington, D.C. “That’s just unacceptable. And so the answer is yes, we’ve had a number of constituents very concerned about the delayed mail delivery to their homes.”

With everything from medications to Social Security checks and pension checks arriving in people’s mailboxes, the delays are affecting those who may not have ready access to a doctor or pharmacy, the Congressman said — specifically, those who live in rural Minnesota.

“We’re seeing the grave concerns that are negatively affecting our families across (the) Northland,” Stauber said
