Heitkamp asks postmaster general to address ND issues

Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., called on U.S. Postmaster General Patrick Donahue recently to make needed changes to address strong concerns expressed by North Dakotans about their mail service and standards, according to a release

During the past two months, Heitkamp has encouraged North Dakotans who are experiencing problems with their mail delivery to send in their stories via her website. Heitkamp has received well over 100 stories from North Dakotans from across the state about the difficulties they face with mail delivery and standards, according to Heitkamp’s office.

“The way the U.S. Postal Service operates right now, specifically in North Dakota, is unacceptable,” Heitkamp said in the release. “Since launching Fix My Mail in January, I’ve heard shocking stories from folks from Grand Forks to Dickinson about problems they have faced with their mail.”
