Richmond, VA – Congressman A. Donald McEachin (VA-04) sent a letter to Richmond Postmaster Thekkekara reiterating his concern that local United States Postal Service (USPS) representatives were unaware of many complaints regarding mail delivery in Richmond.

During an in-person meeting held on Monday, Rep. McEachin personally informed Postmaster Thekkekara and members of the Richmond USPS team about the several constituent complaints he and his staff have received in the last 30 days.

“The constituents of the 4th Congressional District deserve the best quality of service from the programs their tax dollars support. To ensure quick results for my constituents, I informed Postmaster Thekkekara directly about the outstanding number of issues we see in the Richmond area. I am pleased that our offices were able to agree on open, regular communication to achieve our shared goal for those experiencing delivery issues,” said Congressman McEachin. “I am hopeful that yesterday’s meeting was helpful for Postmaster Thekkekara, most importantly, to help my constituents receive their mail expeditiously.”

Since the last meeting with local USPS representatives, Congressman McEachin has regularly communicated with USPS representatives at the federal and local level to advocate for mail delivery improvements across the 4th Congressional District. Constituents who continue to experience postal delivery troubles, should contact Congressman McEachin’s office at (804) 486-1840 or call USPS’ local complaint line directly at (804) 775-6313.
