This catalogues our experience of intimidation, stalking, and harassment from carriers and leadership of the Arlington, MA USPS since September 2015. We hope that making this public creates the level of accountability necessary to provide fellow citizens better treatment by this government agency.

The below posts contain the specifics of what happened to us in a journal format, which include diagrams, images, and video which support our claims. For a one-page summary, see our about page. We also have a FAQ.

The stress of what Heather experienced has finally caught up with her. Over the past few days, she has had continuous panic attacks that begin to peak in intensity in the mid-afternoon (when she would drive to pick me up from the bus stop and be targeted by Alan Hodgkins). She’s been unable to sleep more than a few hours a night. She lost her appetite and doesn’t eat more than a few bites at meals. She mostly stays in her office because she doesn’t feel comfortable anywhere else in the house.

(Read more..)


2018-02-12

Alan Hodgkins waited for Heather to leave home, and then followed her to the bus stop and started to deliver near her, approaching closer and closer. When he parked next to Heather’s vehicle, Heather locked the doors and taped Al with her cell phone. He retaliated by calling Arlington PD claiming harassment.

2018-01-03

I had the car today as Heather is currently laid low by some stomach bug. I drove the car via the usual path at the exact timing I usually come home by bus. As a matter of fact, I passed that very bus as I got ready to turn onto the main road that leads home.

2017-11-29

Alan Hodgkins is continuing to escalate this situation and is increasing the level of sophistication in his actions. Today shows that he has used considerable thought and planning to surprise and terrorize Heather. Again, his current tactics are to place himself and his vehicle in positions where he can observe her from behind by surprise.

(Read more..)


2017-11-27

Today’s the first time we resumed our routine since Thanksgiving. His was parked in wait for us, just sitting in his vehicle.

2017-11-17

Al Hodgkins has really locked onto our routine and exploiting it to the fullest.

(Read more..)


2017-11-15

We haven’t seen Alan Hodgkins for a whole week. I would guess he was on vacation. Today he’s back and is resuming the same things as before, but with a new wrinkle- he appears from behind or from the side in order to surprise Heather. I also believe he’s trying to evade our dashcams. He probably hasn’t realized yet that we’ve had rear dashcams for quite some time.

(Read more..)


2017-11-03

Alan Hodgkins has discovered that we have returned to our normal routine, so he has adjusted his routine to make sure he can continue to harass Heather. While a Federal court case is pending, no less.

2017-10-18

Today is the first day that we returned to the normal routine of me commuting home to get picked up from the bus stop by Heather. We’ve been discussing it with our lawyer for quite some time, things have been peaceful, and it’s important that we return to our previous routine before winter.

2017-07-05

I decided to perform a before-and-after analysis comparing USPS appearances near our home before the Harassment Prevention Order and during it to see if there is a significant difference between the behavior of Alan Hodgkins and other carriers. The results were shocking.

(Read more..)


2017-06-05

The US Attorney, representing the USPS, successfully vacated the harassment prevention order protecting Heather from Alan Hodgkins. We were given no notice. Within hours, Hodgkins staged an confrontation with Heather in our neighborhood on the path to the bus stop to pick me up.

2017-05-16

2017-05-08

Heather and Lauren Thomas went to Cambridge District Court, filed affidavits, and went before Judge Hogan. They succeeded in getting a harassment prevention order issued for a period of 10 days against Alan Hodgkins.

2017-05-04 Progress Report

It has been over two months since the meeting with USPS leadership. Given the situation I felt it important to write up a progress report to show how the USPS has performed since then, and to determine if Nick Francescucci has kept to his word.

(Read more..)


2017-05-02

Our lawyer managed to get word from Postmaster Nick Francescucci. Apparently the GPS records they pulled from Alan Hodgkins’ truck doesn’t match what Heather and I are claiming. I don’t care- we have video and photo evidence to back up everything we are saying. Lauren is sending Nick the video evidence now.

(Read more..)


2017-05-01

Alan Hodgkins is back to using his truck to watch us go to and from the bus stop. This is the first day that I’m back to work from a week-long conference.

2017-04-29

Alan Hodgkins appeared behind our house a total of 5 times. This is less than a day after I returned.

I flew back from the conference and rode the last few miles home using rideshare from the subway station.

(Read more..)


2017-04-18

Lauren called us and went over some details around what happened last week so she can draft an email to Nick Francescucci about the danger of Alan Hodgkins’ behavior.

(Read more..)


2017-04-17

Worked from home today so Heather doesn’t have to pick me up and encounter Alan Hodgkins in the neighborhood. Last week was a total nightmare.

(Read more..)


2017-04-14

Alan Hodgkins monitored when Heather left home, and then used his truck to frighten/intimidate her as she was parked near a bus stop to wait for me.

(Read more..)


2017-04-13

Al Hodgkins appeared within view of our home 6 times over a period of 4 hours. One of those appearances was in the front of our home at 11:58AM, again in violation of the agreement we made with Nick on February 24th.

(Read more..)


2017-04-12

Alan Hodgkins almost hit Heather’s car with his mail truck while passing.

2017-03-30

Sharon Demirdjian delivered again with Don supervising. Heather stayed in her office to avoid any conflict per my request.

(Read more..)


2017-03-29

USPS Leadership decided to try to put Sharon Demirdjian back to serving our house.

(Read more..)


2017-03-27

Today Al Hodgkins already drove past the back of the house twice before noon without delivering. The times he arrives are becoming more and more inconsistent.

(Read more..)


2017-03-24

It’s been 4 weeks since the meeting with USPS Leadership. I provided our lawyer a status report.

(Read more..)


2017-03-22

Alan Hodgkins appears behind the house to deliver earlier than he’s ever had (11:03AM), possibly to catch Heather by surprise.

(Read more..)


2017-03-17

Alan Hodgkins appeared behind our house 5 times today over a period of 3h27m.

(Read more..)


2017-03-16

Heather saw a mail truck drive past the front of the house, making mocking gestures. She believes that this is Sharon Demirdjian, through the video footage doesn’t clearly show the truck number.

(Read more..)


2017-03-11

Our lawyer forwarded us a message from USPS Human Resources that was addressed to her. Apparently our situation has gotten their attention. The letter simply stated that the meeting took place, that the meeting addressed our concerns, and they hope that we will be satisfied with our mail service moving forward.

(Read more..)


2017-03-10

It’s been two weeks since the meeting with USPS Leadership. Mail delivery to the home has been normal and uneventful. Alan Hodgkins has appeared behind our home 2-3 times per day, which seems pretty excessive. He’s also cutting through people’s yards. He’s also appearing after 5PM which is a problem for Heather since she wants to start cooking dinner without being watched.

(Read more..)


2017-02-26

Our lawyer notified us that she forwarded Nick Francescucci the copy of the grievance and links to multiple unlisted Youtube videos containing some evidence.

(Read more..)


2017-02-24

We had the meeting in a conference room that our lawyer had access to in a law office in Boston. The USPS wanted to hold the meeting at the Arlington office which to me was absolutely ridiculous. I really wasn’t satisifed with how the meeting went. Mail got turned back on but I don’t think we managed to address the root causes.

(Read more..)


2017-02-22

We got the attendee list. Besides Heather, our lawyer, and myself:

  • Attorney Jim Friedman, Regional Council
  • Don Piscatelli
  • Jim Murphy (Don’s supervisor)
  • Nicholas Francescucci, Boston Postmaster
(Read more..)


2017-02-21

Our lawyer requested our presence for a meeting for Friday the 24th with USPS officials. We of course obliged, but Heather had her reservations.

(Read more..)


2017-02-20

Today is President’s Day. We were grateful to have a day off where we knew the USPS wouldn’t be around. Heather was making breakfast in the kitchen at around 7AM, and saw a man with glasses and a baseball cap just loitering around in the cul-de-sac behind our house. (Who wears sunglasses at 7AM in the dead of winter?) He was looking at our house. He had a similar body type as Alan Hodgkins. When Heather started to record he walked back to his car just parked out of view of our home and drove off. Heather wasn’t able to get a license plate since the car was so far away.

(Read more..)


2017-02-19

Still on lockdown. The mood was somber.

(Read more..)


2017-02-18

We’re still hunkered down at our house. We’ve been in a defensive posture since February 7th. Heather hasn’t left home really since then. I haven’t left home since the 15th when the inspectors came. We didn’t even shovel the snow that’s accumulated after a storm came through.

(Read more..)


2017-02-17

Someone visited our landlady’s house today and was carrying some paperwork. We were concerned that the USPIS was possibly trying to pressure my landlady into taking some kind of action against us. Heather recorded her plates.

(Read more..)


2017-02-16

I continued to work from home. A pair of carriers went up and down the street delivering all the mail.. except to us. That includes the duplex right next door to us. I feel really bad for them because they are continuing to get punished for a situation that had nothing to do with them.

(Read more..)


2017-02-15

Postal Inspectors visited our house without warning even though we’ve had legal council for over a year.

(Read more..)


2017-02-14

No deliveries. Trucks are driving past our house though.

(Read more..)


2017-02-10

Still no mail for us or for homes in visual range of our house, except for a single home down the street served by Sharon Demirdjian.

(Read more..)


2017-02-09

We learn that Don is completely unable to control the situation by means of adjusting routes- he is totally at the mercy of the “Route Inspection Team”. What this means is that he has no direct authority to solve the problem himself. This information was gathered from an email recieved on February 3rd.

(Read more..)


2017-02-08

First thing in the morning, Heather and I went to the Arlington Police station, got a copy of the police report from what happened two days ago, and sent it to our lawyer.

(Read more..)


2017-02-07

We haven’t been getting a lot of sleep lately due to the recent activity.

(Read more..)


2017-02-06

More coordinated efforts today. This time, it seems that some of the harassment is being done by people driving in regular non-USPS vehicles.

(Read more..)


2017-02-04

Due to yesterday’s events with Alan Hodgkins coordinating harassment with another mail carrier, we were pretty upset. I was spending most of the day trying to fix the camera system issue. Al came to deliver behind the home as usual and Heather was pretty angry. We haven’t been saying anything to these people for over a year while they’ve been doing all this stuff to us.

(Read more..)


2017-02-03

Heather got ganged up on by multiple carriers today. It looks like they were coordinating their efforts.

(Read more..)


2017-02-02

We kept the signs up. Al Hodgkins was escorted by two men. Perhaps postal inspectors?

(Read more..)


2017-01-31

Heather watched on the porch as Al Hodgkins delivered behind the house. He saw the sign, and immediately took his camera out to record us (and the sign). He didn’t get it. He didn’t care.

(Read more..)


2017-01-30

From this point Heather and I were jointly past frustration with Al. He’s been doing all sorts of aggressive behavior since June of 2016 and there’s been little consequence for him and little relief for us. We have gotten no updates from USPS management around the timing of a route change. So, we decided to create a sign as a deterrant.

(Read more..)


2017-01-24

As Don has been delivering mail to our home for a while, I put up a sign at our front door asking him to knock so we can have a chat about Al Hodgkins’ activities in order to get some kind of movement on this issue. Our lawyer wasn’t available at the time to talk to him.

(Read more..)


2017-01-23

Today Al Hodgkins recorded Heather with his cell phone from a neighbor’s landing. Given that it has now been a whole year since we had to hire a lawyer to manage this situation, Heather and I are starting to get extremely frustrated that little has been achieved to solve this problem, despite filing a formal grievance and my lawyer spending a lot of time on the phone with management.

(Read more..)


2017-01-21

Al Hodgkins continues to drive past our home multiple times a day though it is not on his route.

(Read more..)


2017-01-19

Al Hodgkins repeats the past behavior of driving past our house multiple times for no practical reason.

(Read more..)


2017-01-18

Al Hodgkins has started to appear more and more often in view of our home, primarily behind our home which has a cul-de-sac which is on his route. USPS would argue that “it’s his route”, but Al is definitely taking advantage of that by passing by way more than necessary. At this time I do not record activities behind our home, so usually I depend on Heather to tell me what Al’s activities are.

(Read more..)


2017-01-13

Alan Hodgkins is starting to act aggressively towards us using his mail truck when we are away from the house.

(Read more..)


2017-01-11

Heather while driving encountered Alan Hodgkins. He stopped his vehicle to look at her.

(Read more..)


2017-01-10

Our lawyer reached out to us over email and asked if things have been quiet since before the new year.

(Read more..)


2016-12-11

Heather and I were returning home from running some errands and we saw none other than Alan Hodgkins’ mail truck parked across the street from our house.

(Read more..)


2016-11-29 Part 2

Our lawyer confirmed that there was a management change at the Arlington USPS and spoke to the new manager to get him up to speed. The new manager’s name is Don Piscatelli. Our lawyer forwarded the following:

(Read more..)


2016-11-29

Al Hodgkins drove past the front of the house again and parked at the entrance to the park near our home and remains there. This again blocks Heather’s access to the park. Again, Al has no business being near our home.

(Read more..)


2016-11-28

Sharon Demirdjian delivered to the house at the end of our street again though she was instructed by Nancy Nigro to avoid being near our home. That address is only two houses away. I believe this is because of the management change.

(Read more..)


2016-11-21

Alan Hodgkins continues to pass by our house multiple times a day though our street is not on his route and there are more expedient and better-maintained ways to go places. The road that intersects with our street in front of our home is laden with potholes, being that we live in the Northeast. There is another road that he skips in favor of the one by my house that is well-maintained.

(Read more..)


2016-11-17

Once again Al Hodgkins, a mail carrier who doesn’t even serve our house, parks at the end of the street in a no-parking zone in view of our home. This time, Heather gets proof.

(Read more..)


2016-11-13

Alan Hodgkins parks at the end of the street again blocking access to a public park in a no-parking zone within view of our home.

2016-11-11

Heather ordered a DVD as one of her Christmas gifts to me. It came damaged, with telltale signs that the package was deliberately tampered with by human hands.

(Read more..)


2016-11-09

A unknown USPS carrier got the contact info from our landlord from his work van and made a harassing phone call in an attempt to start problems between our landlord and us. We believe the carrier to be Alan Hodgkins.

2016-10-31

Alan Hodgkins reappears parking down the street again blocking the entrance to a park within view of our home. From Heather’s email to our lawyer:

(Read more..)


2016-10-29

Our lawyer called the main USPS legal department and Arlington USPS to see if anyone has read or got assigned to our grievance as we’ve gotten no acknowledgement at this point.

(Read more..)


2016-10-10

At 13:11 Heather heard some noise by the front door.

(Read more..)


2016-10-06

Heather started to see a therapist using an online service.

(Read more..)


2016-09-16

Things have been completely quiet since Sharon Demirdjian yelled at Heather from her mail truck on August 30th. Sharon has not appeared within view since, however Heather has decided to continue to adjust her schedule to ensure she doesn’t run into her:

(Read more..)


2016-09-06

The (cancelled) bank card finally arrived.

(Read more..)


2016-09-02

The bank card has still not arrived yet. Heather made the original request on the 15th of August. Heather called the bank and cancelled the card that was in transit and flagged it for fraud just to be on the safe side. She is currently arranging to pick it up at the local branch.

(Read more..)


2016-08-31

Our lawyer successfully contacted Nancy. Nancy provided the following details regarding Sharon:

2016-08-30

Sharon Demirdjian screamed slur ‘dyke’ at Heather from her mail truck.

(Read more..)


2016-08-25

Our landlord advised us earlier in the month that we should probably put a notice on our door saying that we’re video recording. He was fully made up-to-date on this situation and was pretty supportive, which I am of course grateful. I thought his request was reasonable so I did so.

(Read more..)


2016-08-02

Things have been quiet for the past month or so. We have not gotten an official statement from the USPS as to what they will be doing moving forward.

(Read more..)


2016-07-14

Since Sharon Demirdjian has been removed from serving our house by Arlington USPS manager Nancy Nigro, Heather has continued to record Sharon’s activities to ensure that no further aggressive behavior takes place.

(Read more..)


2016-06-27

We got the following notification from our lawyer: Cindy Skelton is no longer working at Arlington USPS. This is probably why Sharon and Alan started acting so badly- they didn’t have management oversight. The new manager is Nancy Nigro, who is currently getting briefed on the situation.

(Read more..)


2016-06-22

At 15:30 mail was delivered without incident by the same gentleman from yesterday. It looks like something happened where Sharon is no longer delivering to our house. This is an improvement, but at this point I would prefer that Sharon be removed entirely.

(Read more..)


2016-06-21

At 15:25 a carrier delivered. He rang the doorbell because he needed to confirm that Heather got a package. He and Heather interacted in a friendly way because he acted with courtesy, which is what I expect from anybody that comes to my home. The business cards from VistaPrint finally got delivered. Here’s the delivery notice:

(Read more..)


2016-06-20

A mail carrier arrived and finally delivered mail to our home in a professional manner after over a week. The Vistaprint order of business cards did not arrive that day, probably because it is still in Sharon’s possession.

(Read more..)


2016-06-18

Sharon Demirdjian passed by our house again without delivering and then recorded Heather with her cell phone.

(Read more..)


2016-06-17 Part 2

My lawyer sent an email to Cindy Skelton warning that the Arlington USPS has been put on notice given the recent grievance filed and reminded her that any future hostle action will be considered retaliation.

(Read more..)


2016-06-17

Today marks the second time that we have evidence to show that Sharon Demirdjian has been interfering with mail in transit to/from our home.

(Read more..)


2016-06-16

Things went totally quiet. A carrier arrived at 9:30, delivered to houses on our street, and left. After that no trucks passed by that day. We were so grateful for a day of peace we actually went and got ice cream to celebrate.

(Read more..)


2016-06-15

The situation continued to escalate. This is also the day that a new male carrier, Alan Hodgkins, took a prominent role in harassment.

(Read more..)


2016-06-14

This is a turning point in this conflict as we begin to see USPS personnel other than Sharon getting involved and USPS personnel driving by our home an excessive number of times.

(Read more..)


2016-06-13

Now that the grievance has been sent and delivered, any further hostile action on the part of Sharon or Arlington USPS can be considered retaliation. Sharon has continued to record Heather.

(Read more..)


2016-06-09

Lauren provided us with the final draft of the grievance and affidavits for us to sign. We signed them. She sent them to:

  • the Arlington Post Office;
  • Recorder, Office of the Judicial Officer in Arlington VA;
  • General Council, Torts, General Law Service Center in St. Louis, MO.
(Read more..)


2016-06-04

Loud noise at our doorstep, indicating a package was thrown again. It was small enough that it could have been placed in our mailbox, and had some pretty delicate stuff in it.

Delivery took place without incident, however Sharon was talking with some person down the street, pointing in our direction. That person was later identifed as Cindy Skelton assessing the situation for herself.
