Ossoff claims the postmaster general ‘doesn’t care about’ Georgians after receiving no reaction regarding delays

U.S. Senator Jon Ossoff has expressed his frustration with the lack of communication from Postmaster General Louis DeJoy regarding the measures being taken to address the ongoing mail delivery delays in metro Atlanta. Despite his attempts to seek updates, Ossoff has not received any information from DeJoy.

In a statement to Channel 2 Action News, Ossoff expressed his bafflement and concern over Postmaster General DeJoy’s refusal to cooperate with basic Senate oversight. Ossoff stated that DeJoy’s actions not only indicate his incompetence in delivering the mail on time but also reflect a lack of concern for the well-being of Georgians who are experiencing distress as a result of this incompetence.

Postal Service delays have become a major concern for both Georgia Democrats and Republicans in the U.S. Congress. They are united in pressing the postmaster for answers and practical solutions to address the ongoing issues that have persisted for months.

The new Palmetto sorting facility has been experiencing a multitude of issues, including delays and lost mail.

Postal employees were kind enough to share a video with us, showcasing the malfunction of the Matrix Regional Sorter (MARS) machine. In the video, we can see mail and packages being inadvertently thrown off the conveyor belt and onto the floor.

Last week, Ossoff sent DeJoy a letter, requesting an update on the measures being taken to address the issues.

DeJoy still hasn’t reached out to him.

“Georgians are suffering as prescriptions fail to arrive, bills go unpaid, and ballots remain uncounted. I am committed to fighting against the failures of the Postmaster General,” stated Ossoff passionately.

Just a month ago, Ossoff and a bipartisan group of Georgia lawmakers questioned DeJoy about the extensively documented issues at the Palmetto facility.

DeJoy assured that the issues would be resolved within the upcoming two months.

During his testimony before Congress, DeJoy assured lawmakers that the United States Postal Service (USPS) has no plans to merge mail centers in approximately 60 locations until the year 2025 at the earliest.
