WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) released the below statement after receiving a response from the United States Postal Service (USPS) following a letter she sent in December asking for more information regarding USPS’s Mail Processing Facility Review of the Charleston Processing and Distribution Center. Senator Capito has remained active on this issue, and has spoken personally with Postmaster General DeJoy and other local officials on the matter.

“After multiple follow-ups, I am disappointed that USPS’s responses failed to adequately address many of my concerns and questions regarding the future of the Charleston facility. While I am glad that the facility will not close, I am still concerned that some jobs may be transferred out of state. In the meantime, I will continue working to seek clarity and answers from USPS and fight against these jobs being transferred out of West Virginia,” Senator Capito said.
