BENNINGTON — While postal delivery concerns remain ongoing in town and elsewhere, they’re not going unheard by the Bennington Banner’s ownership or by the state’s congressional delegation, which remains frustrated by reports of a slowdown in service.
“Senator Leahy’s staff continues to follow this closely and to make inquiries about these problems with postal officials,” David Carle, the chief spokesman for U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy, said. “We’ve been following it for more than a year now. USPS assured us that nobody would go more than three days without delivery, but that clearly isn’t happening.”
U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders’ office said Sanders is “definitely aware and has been speaking with Vermonters and working with the district office on getting this issue resolved as soon as possible.”
