WASHINGTON, DC – Today, U.S. Representative Angie Craig personally delivered 3,361 responses to her USPS survey to Postmaster General Louis DeJoy’s office in Washington, DC.
As part of her efforts to resolve persistent mail delivery delays in Minnesota, Rep. Craig launched the survey in January to hear about issues constituents are having with the Postal Service.
On December 30th, Rep. Craig wrote to DeJoy, expressing her frustrations with the postal service in the Second District and urging him to send support. Instead of responding to her personally, he had a legislative aide respond – a clear lack of personal accountability for the problems Americans are facing with his organization’s service.
“It’s been three months since I called on the Postmaster General to step up USPS service in the Second District. My constituents are going without mail and letter carriers are working overtime to service their routes – this is unacceptable,” said Rep. Craig. “Today, I delivered 3,361 stories detailing how Minnesotans have been impacted by USPS delays to the Postmaster General’s doorstep, and I will not stop working until we have some accountability at the highest levels of USPS leadership.”
Over the past year, Rep. Craig has led the push for postal service reform in the Second District through letters to Postmaster General Louis DeJoy and USPS officials, a listening session with Minnesota residents and legislative action in Congress.
