In response to complaints about erratic mail service, Rep. David Dreier, a Republican who represents La Cañada Flintridge and La Crescenta, asked House Government Reform Chairman Tom Davis, a Virginia Republican, to look into reports of mail delivery problems in communities along the foothills.
Dreier, Chairman of the House Rules Committee, sent a letter to Davis Wednesday asking him to address the concerns of foothill residents and business owners. Similar reports of irregular mail service in the greater Los Angeles area prompted the Government Reform Committee to announce that it will hold a hearing on the issue. Inconsistent mail delivery causes problems with bill payment and collection, Dreier said. A copy of Dreier's letter to Davis is on his website at http://www.dreier.house.gov.
