MAIL UPDATE: TOMORROW, Tuesday October 5 at 10:15 AM, @MarkWarner will hold a remote media availability to discuss the latest developments regarding U.S. Postal Service delays in Charlottesville and Albemarle County. (Video and audio of the session will be released afterwards.)
This pilot program is a great first step towards creating a full postal bank. Families who don't have access to a bank will be able to cash paychecks without paying predatory fees. And it would generate billions to help the @USPS survive and thrive. prospect.org/economy/usps-begins-postal-banking-pilot-program/
Aretha Franklin was not just the Queen of Soul—she was a Detroit icon whose legacy of music and activism will forever symbolize Detroit’s strength and resilience. I was grateful to join her family in Detroit for the dedication & renaming of the @USPS post office in her honor. pic.twitter.com/OiAek8i1Ob
U.S. Postal Service delays in the Charlottesville, VA area are severe enough to warrant involvement of a U.S. senator. @MarkWarner now says #USPS has assigned carriers from around Virginia to "surge" delivery of a backlog, which includes mail ballots in the VA governor's race.
Why is the mail going to slow down?
The simple answer: Your mail may slow down because the Postal Service lengthened its “service standards,” or the amount of time it says it should take for a piece of mail to get delivered. And how much slower it will get depends on where you live. The Washington PostUSPS is about to charge you more for slower mail. Here's why.
