ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) — Richard Cravens spends a good part of his professional life paying attention to deadlines. The attorney defends homeowners in foreclosure proceedings and sometimes houses can be saved or lost in the span of just a few days.
When his mail carrier stopped delivering certified and registered mail that requires a signature, Cravens spoke up. In the past year, he told KRQE News 13 that he has complained about his carrier more than a half-dozen times to the United States Postal Service. The USPS Office of the Inspector General has opened an investigation, but the carrier remains on Cravens’ postal route — and Cravens’ problem remains unsolved.
The Postal Service said in a written statement that it “will continue to monitor the situation” and make sure Cravens’ mail is delivered. A spokeswoman refused to comment further and laughed when a reporter asked whether the carrier had an issue with Cravens.
