Schumer slams post office for “shoddy service” in Larchmont

LARCHMONT – US Senator Charles Schumer blasted the US Postal Service for what he called “shoddy service” in Larchmont and surrounding areas and demanded the release of an audit report of Larchmont’s postal operations in a public meeting. He also called for the agency to announce a plan to “immediately improve the sub-par service.”

The senator came to Larchmont on Friday saying residents of the area have suffered from sporadic mail delivery, leaving them without important mail like bills, passports and other items.

He said the postal service performed its own “top to bottom review,” but has not made it public.

“When Benjamin Franklin created the United States postal system in 1775, he had a simple idea, put a stamp on a letter, put it in a mailbox and the letter would be delivered to the recipient,” Schumer said. “Somehow the Larchmont Post Office had a different idea.” He said for over a year, residents of Larchmont, and now New Rochelle, “continue to have shoddy service problems getting their medications and other critical items.
