U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) and U.S. Representatives Dwight Evans (D-PA) and Matt Cartwright (D-PA) have sent a letter urging United States Postal Service (USPS) Postmaster General Louis DeJoy to address the ongoing mail service issues for Pennsylvanians. The letter comes on the heels of a Congressional oversight hearing on USPS service issues in the Commonwealth that took place in Philadelphia last month. Casey, Evans and Cartwright demanded that the Postal Service develop and share a plan to improve mail service throughout Pennsylvania.
“We write… to express our deep concerns about the persistent service issues at post offices throughout the state of Pennsylvania,” the members of Congress wrote. “While we recognize the extraordinary circumstances the Postal Service has experienced in recent years and are grateful for the frontline postal workers who served our communities under difficult circumstances, we cannot ignore the reports of systemic problems with the quality of mail service. Quality service—timely, secure, and responsive service—is not optional.”
