Lexington’s Paul Steidler was quoted in a story in The Kansas City Star about delayed and inconsistent mail delivery throughout the area. Steidler explained that the Postal Service is “constrained in the rates of pay it can offer, making it more difficult to recruit workers in metro areas.” Still, he said that the Postal Service “could transfer workers on a temporary basis to address severe problems.”
He also pointed out that the Postal Service has more employees than at any time in the past ten years, even though mail volume has significantly declined. In addition, Steidler said, “It’s not a particularly busy time of year. It’s not the Christmas season, it’s not the election season …It really should be fixed and should have been fixed a long time ago.”
