Fed up with the Dundalk Post Office
I am increasingly dismayed by the lack of competent, consistent leadership at the Dundalk Post Office. After spending 45 years teaching and living in one of the friendliest, most helpful, most historical areas in the state, I find myself again defending Dundalk as its post office made the local news for being so inept at its daily delivering of the mail. When I first arrived in Dundalk from a small town in western Pennsylvania, in the late 60’s, it was a time when one particular radio station denigrated Dundalk and its residents and when people found I not only taught school here, but lived here, I had to defend that decision. I am doing that same defending again as we make the news.
I am one of those people who, within seven days, only received mail twice. I was also one of those, like the people interviewed, being told not to come pick mail up, it would not be given to you. I laughed when one suggestion was to get the Informed delivery app. Well, I have that, and all it does is make things worse, for now you have a picture of the mail you are not receiving. I even filed a formal complaint with Dutch Ruppersberger’s office to see if they could help with this problem. They did, for one day! Now we are back to no mail delivery again. My friends in other postal zip codes, also dealing with the virus, have not suffered from no mail delivery. So, bring back my mail, supervisors, new hires, postal workers from other areas, please deliver our mail. We deserve to have you do your job. This is your homework. It is due now.
