Two weeks without mail: Investigation launched into Emporia post office

A United States representative is launching an investigation into ongoing mail delays at an Emporia post office after some residents say they haven’t received any pieces of mail in two weeks.

Brenda Drumgoole, an Emporia resident on Farmer Street, said her mailbox has been empty since Tuesday. She said she relies on mail deliveries and is concerned that bills won’t get to her on time for payment.

“If we don’t get them paid, we get our bills cut off,” Drumgoole said.

Martha Dodd-Slippy, another Emporia resident, said mail has been missing at her job as well and that she is “frustrated.”

“It should not have happened like this,” she said. “The first complaint should have been investigated,” she said.

Congressman Donald McEachin (D-VA 4th District) said his office launched an investigation to find out why the mail issues are happening. He said the postmaster, Trenise Bell, came to Emporia from Fredericksburg about one year ago. Since then, complaints have been piling up.

1. All roads lead to Emporia

Stupid joke my friends and I used to tell. It’s a long story.

2. I've been there

Did a RAM clinic in impossibly hot, humid weather. I've also been to Emporia, KS. On the whole I prefer the VA one.
