Disgusted By USPS Service
To the Editor:
I am disgusted with the US Post Office. I don’t mean the good people of Newtown and Southbury who serve you at the counter or deliver the mail. They are friendly and do good work. I mean the people in charge at the top.
My particular issue is that they were so late delivering our Newtown Historical Society fundraising letters. I took them to our printer at the Jewish Home in Bridgeport on December 14. They finished preparing the mailing and sent them to the post office on December 21 in Bridgeport.
But we waited and waited and they never came. We especially wanted the letters to reach our friends in December, as people are more generous in December. We were distraught, as the Newtown Historical Society gets no money from the town of Newtown. We are entirely self supporting, dependent on fundraising. And in 2020, we weren’t able to have our House and Garden Tour, our major fundraiser, due to the pandemic.
Just a few days ago, some members and friends began to receive those letters. I received mine on January 27, which was 37 days after they were mailed. I find that incredible. We must hold the post office leadership accountable for this terrible injustice!
