Congresswoman Bordallo Calls on Postmaster General to Correct Problems With Its New Address Recognition System on GuamBy
It is of endless wonder and fascination to us here at GADA that it would require a Congresswoman to have to write to the Postmaster General in order to try to get the USPS to listen to its customers. The USPS computerizes mail sorting, but the addressing used in the locality for years is not “standard USPS” as dictated by its address system. And apparently the USPS didn’t know there would be problems, even after all those years of letter carriers hand-sorting mail.
We’re not opposed to the mechanization of sorting, or of extending standardized address and the obligation to use them to the public. There is always something lost when we standardize in the interests of the wider public good, which this would be.
BUT, the USPS could be significantly more sensitive and efficient about getting this done. Letter from the Congressional rep, indeed.
