Senator Marshall Demands Answers For Continued Failures by USPS
Overland Park, KS – Today, U.S. Senator Roger Marshall, M.D., a member of the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee, sent a letter to U.S. Postmaster General DeJoy expressing concerns about delays in mail service reported by Johnson County residents.
In the letter, Senator Marshall demands answers for these delays and shares the frustration of those who have called Senator Marshall’s office about the U.S. Postal Service’s consistent failure to meet its own performance goals. As a member of the committee overseeing the Postal Service, Senator Marshall is committed to obtaining answers to address the frustrations voiced by constituents.
“As your voice in the U.S. Senate, it’s my duty to ensure federal programs, including the U.S. Postal Service, serve the interests of all Kansans,” Senator Marshall said. “Since joining Congress, I’ve emphasized the importance of maintaining six-day-a-week mail service while putting the agency on a path of long-term fiscal sustainability. Currently, the USPS is not meeting its obligations and is falling far short of its own goals and objectives. My goal is to get answers, demand accountability, and fight for Kansans who have been impacted by these failures.”
