3. USPS PROBLEMS – UPDATE
Dear Westwood residents with USPS concerns,
Congressman Ted Lieu takes your USPS concerns very seriously. On his behalf I had a very productive meeting today with USPS authorities. I conveyed your compliments and your complaints.
USPS in your area has been given permission to hire additional workers. It will take a little time to find the right people and train them, and get them to be as good as some of our favorite long time carriers.
Also they have several new systems in the works that should help delivery. Again, these are just going into place and it will take a little time for them to be up and running smoothly.
They are also making an effort to address the stolen mail problem and problems with customer service at the post offices themselves.
Their communications director is going to write a release about some of these changes so that this information is conveyed to you accurately.
Although I will be out of town on vacation from April 18 until May 4th I will occasionally check my e mail and will forward this to you when it comes in.
I also wanted you to know that it was agreed that I would have regular meetings with USPS every 4 to 6 weeks.
So I’ll need you to keep a watchful eye. I will check in with you in a month to see if the situation has improved or gotten worse.
