POTUS, appoint two new USPS Board of Governors members who will fire DeJoy!

431 so far! Help us get to 500 signers!

Nearly two years after his appointment by the Postal Board of Governors, the United States Postal Service continues to languish under Postmaster General Louis DeJoy’s leadership. Despite the passage of the Postal Service Reform Act, DeJoy still plans to raise postage prices at “uncomfortable rates” around the country. Additionally, numerous post office locations are set to be shuttered under his 10-year restructuring plan, potentially impacting thousands of employees during a time of economic crisis. After DeJoy’s numerous failings at the helm, it is imperative that we have a strong, full, and reform-oriented Postal Board of Governors in place to hold him accountable to the true mission and public service goals of the USPS. In your recent comments on the passage of the Postal Service Reform Act, you stated that “the Postal Service is fundamental– to our economy, to our democracy, and to our health, the very sense of who we are as a nation.” Given your stated commitment to defending the Postal Service, I am disappointed in your recent selections of corporate executives Derek Kan and Dan Tangherlini to serve on the Board of Governors, as their backgrounds are littered with close ties to the predatory private equity and real estate industries. Furthermore, neither Kan nor Tangherlini have demonstrated a credible commitment to defending USPS or ousting DeJoy. With two more vacancies slated to open on the Postal Board this coming December, I urge you to nominate candidates who will hold the current Postmaster General Louis DeJoy accountable for his destructive leadership and advocate strongly for the expansion of USPS services. The Board as presently constituted has failed to play its fiduciary role as DeJoy has implemented chaotic delivery directives and advanced his 10-year plan. Adding two new, public interest-minded Board members at this crucial juncture is an essential step to removing DeJoy and defending what has long been the American peoples’ most respected public institution. This is one of the last opportunities your administration has to appoint governors to the postal board. It is essential to select nominees who are wholly committed to the task of protecting and expanding our Postal Service, not allowing it to be destroyed under DeJoy’s “leadership.” Please do so. Thanks.
