Plaskett’s Letter Forces Lax Postal Officials In Frederiksted To Get Off Of Their Arses and Clean Up The Post Office
OVERDUE CLEANUP: The Frederiksted Post Office was content to leave hurricane debris in front of their work place indefinitely. Del. Stacey Plaskett’s letter forced them to start working to clean up the West End post office.
FREDERIKSTED — Some 75 days after Hurricane Maria, Delegate to Congress Stacey Plaskett says it’s high time that the West End post office gets cleaned up.
“My staff and I have been working aggressively to press the cleanup of the Frederiksted Post Office,” Plaskett said. “Not only is it a safety hazard, but it represents a lack of regard for resuming regular service to paying postal patrons in the Frederiksted area.”
The congresswoman for the territory said that she has written to the postmaster about the debris cleanup that needs to happen there.
“Today, I contacted Deputy Postmaster General Ronald Stroman and notified him that if clean up efforts had not begun by the time I depart to Washington this afternoon, I would press the issue on the floor in Congress,” she said.
Apparently, the delegate’s efforts had an immediate effect and the laxness at the post office.
“As I left my office in Frederiksted for the airport, I saw clean up crews,” Plaskett.
