With two more vacancies slated to open on the Postal Board this coming December, I’m writing to ask you to appoint Governors who will stand up to Postmaster General Louis DeJoy’s destructive leadership and advocate strongly for the expansion of USPS services.
Only the USPS Board of Governors can fire Louis DeJoy, and that’s exactly what they should do after DeJoy’s numerous failings, conflicts of interest, and destructive leadership. At the very least, it’s imperative we have a strong, diverse, and reform-oriented Board of Governors in place to hold the Postmaster General accountable to the true mission and public service goals of the USPS.
Now is not the time for more corporate nominees who are focused only on small-scale tweaks, service cuts, or price hikes -- now is the time for a visionary Board that will invest in building the Postal Service of the future. America needs nominees who understand that the USPS could serve an expanded essential role nationwide by providing affordable financial services to low-income communities and families as well as other products and services authorized by Congress in the PSRA
The current board is also majority white and nearly entirely male. The president’s nominees should provide a diversity of life experiences to more accurately represent both the postal workforce and the nation overall -- and not just another rich white man like Louis DeJoy. Please save the USPS and appoint qualified, diverse Board Members who will support firing Louis DeJoy! Thanks.
