RICHMOND, Va. — A second request by Virginia elected leaders for the United States Postal Service to hold a town hall has been denied.
Senators Tim Kaine and Mark Warner (D-Virginia) along with Rep. Jennifer McClellan (D-4th) sent a letter to USPS Virginia District Manager Gerald Roane requesting to facilitate a town hall no later than Friday, January 19.
“We write to advocate on behalf of our constituents, who have continued to share countless stories of mail delays and mail security concerns throughout Virginia and the Fourth Congressional District. While we appreciate your outreach with our offices, we feel our constituents would greatly benefit from direct communications from you or an appropriate United States Postal Service (USPS) representative,” the December 8 letter said.
In a joint statement to CBS 6 on Tuesday, the Virginia lawmakers said USPS denied that request.
