Schumer asks Postal Service: Where’s Larchmont’s mail?Posted: Updated:
Sen. Chuck Schumer called on the Postal Service Friday to make public the results of its study on mail service problems in Larchmont village.
"We are entitled to know," Schumer said. "The Larchmont mail operation stands in direct conflict to the mission of the post office."
Schumer, who said that there are "irregularities" with mail service across the country, called the scale of the problem in Larchmont unheard of.
"I just don't get mail daily," says Eleanor Sherman, a village resident for more than 20 years.
She says the mail delivery problems began recently.
"I called last night, and I said where's my mail? And she said the carrier is a temp, and he's out delivering it," Sherman says. "He never made it to my house."
Dozens of residents have made similar complaints -- some say they missed planned vacations when their passports failed to arrive.
