President Biden has sent his 3 nominees for the USPS board of governors to the Senate. Once confirmed, Democrats will have a majority on the board―and can use it to remove the Postmaster General.
The Senate must not delay the confirmation of these nominees! The Postal Service is a critical piece of American infrastructure, and every day DeJoy has control of it is another opportunity to degrade it.
Louis DeJoy has been running the USPS into the ground. He has ordered the dismantling of sorting machines, cut hours for letter carriers, and generally offered worse service from something most Americans haven’t had cause to think about.
That’s because DeJoy sees his mission not to continue the USPS’ world class service, but to strip the USPS for parts and sell them to private logistics companies like the one he got rich on.
President Biden’s nominees can literally save the USPS from Louis DeJoy―but every day confirmation is delayed, more damage is done.
