Allred Announces Survey to Get Input from North Texans on U.S. Postal Service
DALLAS – Congressman Colin Allred (TX-32) today released a short survey seeking feedback and input from North Texans in the 32nd District regarding the U.S. Postal Service (USPS). Allred has been a vocal champion of the USPS and has voted to provide additional resources so it can continue stable and reliable mail operations during this pandemic. This comes after reports and photos of dismantled machines at a North Texas USPS facility.
“Hearing from North Texans is one of the most important parts of my job, and I invite North Texans to take my survey so I can get feedback on service changes and how to best fight for the needs of North Texas,” said Allred. “Last week, I voted for a bipartisan bill to help end the attacks on the Postal Service and I will continue to fight for this essential service to ensure that postal workers can do their jobs and serve the American people.”
On August 22, Allred voted for the Delivering for America Act, a bill that would prevent the USPS from making operational changes impacting the delivery of the mail. The bill would maintain service standards and prohibit USPS from implementing any changes to the operations or level of service it had in place on January 1, 2020. It passed the House with bipartisan support and Allred is a cosponsor. It also includes $25 billion to support USPS operations.
On August 20, Allred visited the USPS Dallas Processing and Distribution Center to see first hand the impact of the Administration’s changes on postal workers and the delivery of mail in North Texas. Additionally, Allred delivered a video update after his visit which you can watch here.
Allred joined more than 190 of his colleagues in calling on Postmaster General Louis DeJoy to ensure Americans continue to receive timely mail delivery. In May, Allred voted for the Heroes Act, which provided $25 billion in emergency funds to help the USPS operate and protect its workers.
