DC Congresswoman Norton to Host Roundtable on USPS Problems Tomorrow Night

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) will host a D.C. Postal Service Roundtable tomorrow, Wednesday, August 6, at One Judiciary Square from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. to discuss issues of concern to District of Columbia residents about postal service in the city. The Postmaster of the District of Columbia, Gerald A. Roane, Cynthia Goodwin of the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC), John Marcotte of the American Postal Workers Union (APWU), ANC 3F Chairman Adam Tope, and Brennan Dorn and Gail Broeckel, two other District residents who will share experiences with local postal service in their respective communities, will participate in the roundtable. Norton’s office used social media and community outreach to crowd-source local postal service issues from residents in the District. Among the complaints District residents have raised are customer service, after-dark mail delivery, lost and stolen mail, letter carrier safety, and responsiveness to customers’ concerns. Norton said, “We see the roundtable as a problem-solving session to help improve postal service here in the District of Columbia.”

    She is not a congresswoman!

    She is the elected delegate from the District of Columbia, and as such has most of the rights of other Members of Congress (e.g. introducing legislation, voting in committee, etc.), with the exception of voting on the final passage of legislation. As a member of Congress, she is usually referred to as “Congresswoman”.

    A non-voting delegate is not a member of Congress. This job was created in the 1970’s to pacify the residents of D.C. and is basically a ceremonial position.
