Rep. Kim Schrier wrote to Postmaster General about ongoing mail issues in Covington, Maple Valley

Schrier addressed issues that continued to affect mail delivery to Covington residents and unsafe postal conditions in Cle Elum.

SKAGIT COUNTY, Wash. – Washington Representative Kim Schrier wrote a letter to Postmaster General Louis DeJoy about the many ongoing mailing problems facing residents of western Washington.

Schrier addressed issues that continued to affect mail delivery to Covington residents and unsafe postal conditions in Cle Elum.

Schrier asked for information on how the Postal Service would work to keep service gaps from occurring again and speed up the relocation of Postal Service employees in Cle Elum.

“This particular area has a mix of suburban, rural and suburban neighborhoods, where regular mail service is particularly important,” Schrier writes.

She wrote that on November 9, residents from Maple Valley contacted and said they did not receive any mail that week. They are still short of checks, medicines and holiday presents.

Schrier writes: “The Postal Service is one of the most important organizations in these communities and I hope we can work together to fix these problems.

Schrier also wrote that this is not the first time she has contacted the USPS for help with this issue.

“My district staff promptly reached out to local USPS representatives and reached out several times in late November and early December but did not receive a complete or no response,” she wrote.

In Cle Elum, the post office was forced to switch to trailers in September due to asbestos and sewer lines breaking.

“Employees have been working diligently in cold conditions as the repair plan has dragged on for months, and these hardworking public servants deserve better,” Schrier wrote.
