RICHMOND, Va. -- Have you or your business been impacted from recent changes the Trump Administration has made to the U.S. Postal Service?

If so, Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring wants to hear from you.

Herring has set up a dedicated email address with his office, USPS@oag.state.va.us, where Virginians or Virginia business owners that have been impacted by the changes can send their stories.

“We have already begun to hear about impacts that the Trump Administration’s hasty, illegal changes to the U.S. Postal Service have had,” said Attorney General Herring. “Virginians all across our Commonwealth rely on the Postal Service for important things like life-saving medications, paying their bills or other payments, and other necessary goods that may not be arriving on time because of these changes. If you, a family member, or friend have been directly impacted by these changes to the U.S. Postal Service please reach out to my office and share your story with us.”

Examples of information Attorney General Herring is looking for:

· Delays in receiving medication
· Delayed receipt of Social Security checks or other forms of payment
· Late receipt bills
· Late receipt of official government notices
· Delayed receipt of packages

Earlier this month, Herring filed a federal lawsuit challenging the Trump Administration’s operational changes at the U.S. Postal Service that some believe could undermine the national election in November. His lawsuit seeks to stop and reverse cuts and changes at the postal service.

Herring is also encouraging Virginians who work for USPS who may have knowledge of what is happening at various USPS facilities to reach out to his office at USPS@oag.state.va.us or at (804) 786-2071.
