ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A Minnesota congresswoman wants to know what’s causing days-long delays in mail delivery in the Twin Cities’ southern suburbs.
Democratic U.S. Rep. Angie Craig sent U.S. Postmaster General Louis DeJoy a letter on Friday saying she was frustrated with reports that her constituents regularly go up to four days without mail, with some saying they haven’t gotten any mail since Dec. 16., the St. Paul Pioneer Press reported.
Craig represents Dakota, Scott, Goodhue and Wabasha counties as well as parts of Rice and Washington counties.
She said she wrote to the postal service in early November about mail delays in Lakeville and followed up with a phone call on Dec. 8. Constituents continue to complain despite pledges that a route wouldn’t go underserved for more than a day, Craig said.
