Cleaver, Graves want Postmaster General to personally address Kansas City’s mail service issues

Two of Missouri’s congressmen are demanding the head of the U-S Postal Service personally address problems surrounding mail delivery issues in the Kansas City area. 

Democrat Emanuel Cleaver and Republican Sam Graves wrote a letter to Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, requesting that he host a “listening session” in Kansas City in which area residents would lodge their complaints in person. 

Graves says the postal service has “completely abandoned their legal responsibility” to reliably deliver the mail 6 days a week, while Cleaver says the postal service has “quickly devolved into a sad display of constant delays, infrequent deliveries, and endless excuses.” 

In response, postal officials have cited the low unemployment rate and encouraged area residents to apply to work for them.
