Rep. Wittman to host community forum on mail delivery concerns this Friday

Rep. Rob Wittman will host a listening session Friday in James City County where residents are invited to share their concerns with the United States Post Office mail delivery process.

Residents are encouraged to voice their customer service concerns and share suggestions for improvement, according to a news release from Wittman’s office.

“Folks rely on the post office to conduct business, pay taxes and bills, receive important legal documents and to complete countless other basic tasks, so it’s absolutely critical to address taxpayers’ concerns with the services they pay for,” Wittman said in the release. “I want to ensure my office is doing everything it can to resolve these issues. “

Officials from the USPS Richmond District Office, including District Manager Janice Atherly, Marketing Manager Benjamin Farmer and District Communications Coordinator Frances Kipper will be at the meeting to field questions and hear concerns from residents, according to the release.

“This listening session will give constituents in the region an opportunity to speak directly with the USPS, meet with caseworkers in my office and receive important mail safety information,” Wittman said. “I’m looking forward to a productive conversation that results in tangible solutions for my constituents.”
