RALEIGH (WTVD) — Shortly after ABC11 aired a story Wednesday regarding mail delivery issues in the Waverly Point subdivision, dozens of North Carolinians contacted the station to share their displeasure with the United States Postal Service.
Waverly Point residents said their mail has been consistently delivered as late as 3 a.m., to the wrong address, damaged, showing as delivered but not received, or in some cases, not at all.
Emails poured in from Raleigh, Pittsboro, Hope Mills, Durham, Cary, Wake Forest, Mebane, Apex, parts of Johnston County and even from Carteret County on the coast. One by one, the emails highlighted problems with the USPS; similar to what Waverly Point residents were experiencing.
Jaime Hoffman, who moved to North Carolina 12 years ago, is having issues with mail delivery as well.
“I think probably more than anything, it’s just accountability,” Hoffman said. “I would say the USPS needs to be accountable to someone besides themselves. And if nobody is taking an active role to say, ‘Hey why are you doing this? Why is it being done wrong?’ then they would have no reason to change or improve because nobody is going to chastise them for not doing it right.”
After further investigation, ABC11 has concluded the issues were not limited to Waverly Point. In fact, per the office of Congressman Mark Meadows (NC-06), USPS as a whole has a ‘mismanagement’ issue.
