Congresswoman Debbie Dingell Continues To Push The USPS To Improve Mail Delivery In Washtenaw County

Oct 9, 2020

Twelfth District Congresswoman Debbie Dingell continues to urge the United States Postal Service to improve service in Washtenaw County.  

Congresswoman Debbie Dingell says her office continues to get complaints from residents across Washtenaw County who are experiencing significant delays in mail delivery times throughout the week.  Dingell says she’s reached out to the Postal Service about mail sorting machines being removed as part of operational changes instituted by U.S. Postmaster General Louis DeJoy but has not heard back from them.

Congresswoman Debbie Dingell: You don’t know how many people are dependent upon the mail, especially seniors for their medicine.  But now that we’ve had the pandemic, so many people count on the mail service to deliver essential goods.  The mail is the glue that holds us together, keeps us connected.  

Dingell says that, if voters plan to mail their absentee ballots for the general election, they should mail them at least two weeks before the election to make sure they get to the local clerk’s office by November 3rd.
