Press Release

WASHINGTON — U.S. Representative Bobby L. Rush (D-Ill.) sent a letter today to United States Postmaster General Megan J. Brennan regarding the situation surrounding the Village of Crestwood’s request for an independent ZIP code.

Following years of stonewalling and disparate treatment by the United States Postal Service (USPS), Rush, last year, requested an investigation by the USPS Office of the Inspector General. This investigation clearly documents how USPS treated Crestwood differently than other municipalities in the country. With his letter, Rush requests that the Postmaster General right this wrong.
