NBC29: Rep. Spanberger says things are improving for the postal service


7th District Representative Abigail Spanberger (D) says she is again hearing from Virginians about mail delivery problems.

Senators Mark Warner and Tim Kaine have repeatedly pushed for change in the commonwealth.

Rep. Spanberger says mail not being delivered on time is a problem she constantly hears about.

“I’ve heard it from small-business owners, from constituents, from folks expecting to get their medications and prescriptions through the mail that the impact has been significant,” she said Thursday, March 28.

Spanberger says she has been working local partners and other members of Congress to get to the bottom of the issue.

“Some of it, frankly, I think is an issue of of communication. They have been making changes to their facility kind of structurally – which machines are where – which created some significant delays,” the representative said.

Spanberger says progress is being made: “I think we are finally kind of breaking through and moving in the right direction, at least throughout central and Northern Virginia,” she said.

The next steps are simply figuring out how to catch up.
