The Mail Must Go Through!

But not in Maplewood Malden

Dear Editor,

  For the past 14 months the mail delivery (lack thereof) in the Maplewood area has been sporadic at best – calls to the Malden Post office continue to go unanswered and our regular mail carrier Brian does Youmans’ work but when he is out due to vacation or illness our mail on Bowman St. and Constance St. goes undelivered for days.

  Elderly neighbors are not receiving their medications which are depended upon by the USPS. No manager or supervisor returns calls to anyone; important documents being delivered after 4:00 PM – days of sitting in the Malden Post office. Poor excuses as, “Oh sorry, short staffed.”

  So, Maplewood pays the price for all of Malden. Whomever is the Postmaster in Malden, you should be terminated on the spot as this is unacceptable practice.

  I have contacted Congresswoman Katherine Clark’s office – let’s see how this plays out.

  If the residents of Maplewood do not get any satisfaction; then my next letter is going to the Postmaster General of the US.

  Rain, sleet, snow never stops the USPS. Only in Maplewood Malden it does.
