DENVER, Colo. (KRDO) — Senator John Hickenlooper said he’s disappointed in the solution on the table to fix the current mail delays.

The delays have left several Coloradans struggling to get medication, packages, and other important mail.

In rural El Paso County, some Peyton residents are driving 40 minutes to get their mail to try and avoid longer waits.

Sen. Hickenlooper told 13 Investigates he met with Postmaster General Louis DeJoy about the mail issues. He said the USPS should have advantages over companies like FedEx or UPS, but instead it’s falling behind.

The senator told 13 Investigates the USPS has been underfunded for nearly two decades and the raising cost of living in many areas creates issues for employees. He hopes that more funding can be added nationally to resolve some of these problems.
