HANOVER TWP., Pa. – A surprise afternoon visit to the Lehigh Valley USPS facility from Senator Bob Casey and Congresswoman Susan Wild left them without the answers they were looking for.
“This is a public service that is enshrined in the United States Constitution and yet the senior senator from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the representative in Congress from this district are not even being granted access to the building. To me, that’s just amazing,” Wild said.
The two joined union postal workers who say their cries for help are falling on deaf ears when it comes to Postmaster General Louis DeJoy.
Congresswoman Wild says they came with the intent to get a tour from plant manager Christopher Bruno. His secretary said he was in a meeting and wouldn’t be available.
“Mr. Bruno didn’t answer the phone. We knocked on the door, there was absolutely no response. And I have to say, it really troubles me that any governmental agency is showing this little transparency and accountability,” Wild said.
