Washington takes notice of delayed mail

The state’s federal legislators are weighing in on recurrent mail delays being experienced by residents throughout northeastern Minnesota.

Sen. Amy Klobuchar and Rep. Pete Stauber both addressed the topic last week.

“During the past weeks, I have heard from many of you from all around the Northland about major disruptions in mail delivery,” said Stauber, R-Hermantown, in a Facebook post. “In some areas, people haven’t received mail in three weeks.”

Klobuchar, a Democrat, wrote U.S. Postmaster General Louis DeJoy on Dec. 31, urging him to do everything he could to address mail service issues.
