NBC29, Rep. Abigail Spanberger relaunches postal survey

NBC29, JACOB PHILLIPS

As staffing shortages continue with USPS, Congresswoman Abigail Spanberger wants to hear from you through her postal survey.

David Schmidt lives in Charlottesville. He says he is having issues with mail delivered in the city.

“If I want to send something across the street in Charlottesville, it can take two weeks to a month. If I mail it from here to Lynchburg or Roanoke, it’s there the next day,” Schmidt said. “I’ve been a resident of Charlottesville almost 50 years and we’ve had ongoing issues with the postal service.”

Spanberger says that according to recent reports, USPS is experiencing staffing shortages throughout the Commonwealth.

Spanberger says she wants to hear how people are being impacted by inconsistent and unreliable mail service. She says that the responses will help her push for a solution.
