U.S. Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) sent a letter to the United States Postal Service (USPS) Inspector General Tammy Whitcomb Hull, urging an audit of all post offices and distribution centers in St. Louis County, St. Charles County, and St. Louis City as Missourians continue to experience consistent mail and delivery delays.

“Recently, a growing number of Missouri residents from the St. Louis area have contacted my office, citing insufficient mail delivery services. For some constituents, the result has been routine delivery delays, while others have not received deliveries at all,” Senator Hawley wrote.

He continued, “One resident in the St. Louis area said she had not received her mail in more than three months, resulting in late bills and financial harm to her small business operations. Others have described losing access to their prescription medications and Social Security checks.”

Earlier this month, Senator Hawley pressed Postmaster General and USPS CEO Louis DeJoy for an update on the ongoing postal delays in St. Louis and Kansas City, Mo., and questioned him on his plan to address the problems.
