Louis DeJoy is destroying the USPS. Period. He needs to go!
DeJoy’s list of scandals and misdeeds is jaw-dropping, even by the standards of the Trump administration:
He donated nearly $700,000 to Trump’s Republican National Convention before being rewarded by Trump with the postmaster general job. During his tenure, on-time mail delivery declined from 92% to 61% while postal rates went up. He’s under investigation for campaign finance law violations and conflicts of interest. Delivery slowdowns delayed ballots during the 2020 presidential election, and similar problems are being reported in this year’s midterm primaries. He announced plans to buy 50,000 gas-guzzling mail trucks despite rising gas prices and in defiance of the Biden administration’s climate plan. He agreed to increase the number of electric vehicles only after facing multiple lawsuits.
I could go on.
This December, President Biden will have the chance to replace two DeJoy loyalists with pro-postal nominees. He must. The USPS board cannot continue to rubber-stamp the destruction of this precious American institution.
I am asking you to put pressure on the President to appoint two strong Board members who will vote to fire DeJoy. Americans are furious about this situation. Firing him will be immensely popular. Please, please use whatever channels you can to pressure President Biden to do this. Thanks.
