Pecos Woman Claims Mailman Won't Deliver Mail

PECOS, TX (KWES) - A Pecos woman is taking action against her mailman and the post office. She claims she hasn't been receiving her mail for the past week. After reaching out to the Pecos Postmaster, she says she still hasn't received any help.

"Enough is enough. I want my mail back," said Anita Dominguez.

She noticed her mail services stopped last Tuesday.

"The mailman says that my mailbox isn't close enough for him to just reach out and put my mail in," she said.

Dominguez claims the mailman delivers to every other residence in the area, even to those that have mailboxes next to their front doors. In this case, however, he won't get out of his truck to take a few extra steps to reach her mailbox. A statement issued by Communications Program Specialist from the U.S. Postal Service, Sam Bolen, "mail recipients must have a visible street identification number in a convenient location, which Dominguez has done her best to accommodate to.

"I want to know what's going on," she said. "We haven't had anything from the post office telling us, 'hey, move your mail box up to the front.' He did that on his own."

Dominguez says this is an injustice to her husband who served in the United States military.

"He feels offended because he is an ex-marine, he served this country," Dominguez said. "He went out there for our government so why would they want to treat him like this?"

NewsWest 9 visited the mail carriers residence Wednesday afternoon, but he was not home. Dominguez has reached out to Congress in an effort to find some answers, and she won't stop there.

"If there is anybody out there, a lawyer that is willing to help me out with this and is not afraid of the government, come on. Let's do something," said Dominguez.
