Fed up with the Dun­dalk Post Of­fice

The Dundalk Eagle - - NEWS - By ANNA RICHEY Ger­man Hill Road

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.
