To:  Office of California State Senator Toni Atkins, 39th District

On Monday, 10/22/2018, I mailed a 4-page letter (dated 10/21/2018) to Senator Atkins’ District Office, using the local address

1350 Front Street, Suite 4061
San Diego, CA 92101

given on the official letterhead of her 10/18/2018 letter to me.

My letter of 10/21/2018 was sent Certified Mail at the Sorrento Valley Post Office (92121-9998) and, after being held by USPS for several days and then re-routed to Pasadena for special processing on Saturday (10/27/2018), my letter was returned to me on 10/30/2018, marked:


I assume that

“The week-long delay in sending a 4-page letter across town was presumably caused by the terrorist shipment of over a dozen improvised explosive devices to prominent Democrats and anti-Trump activists on both coasts.”

as I posted in an update, tracking the status of my letter, at:

But something else is apparently going on here, and I would like to know what it is: since her District Office is presently closed (“vacant”), why is there no forwarding address for mail sent to Senator Atkins by her constituents in the 39th District?

I already posted a digital version of my 10/21/2018 letter here:

but I still wish to send Senator Atkins a formal, printed & signed copy of the letter, with USPS officially certifying that her office has received it.

So, how do I do this? Must I use Senator Atkins’ Capitol Office address

State Capitol
Room 205
Sacramento, CA 95814

from now on?
