Biden takes his step to do away with Louis DeJoy
President Biden has sent his three candidates to the USPS Board of Governors to the Senate, and after they are approved they can remove Postmaster General Louis DeJoy.
The White House announced in a statement:
NOMINATIONS SENT TO THE SENATE:
Anton George Hajjar of Maryland will serve as Governor of the Postal Service of the United States for a term ending December 8, 2023 and Vice Carolyn L. Gallagher for the term that has expired.
Amber Faye McReynolds of Colorado becomes Governor of the United States Postal Service for a term ending December 8, 2026, and Vice David Williams for an expired term.
Ronald Stroman of the District of Columbia will serve as Governor of the United States Postal Service for a term ending December 8, 2021, and Vice Ellen C. Williams for an expired term.
Ronald Stroman of the District of Columbia will serve as Governor of the United States Postal Service for a term ending December 8, 2028. (reappointment)
Once Biden’s nominations are confirmed, the Democrats will have an edge on the Board of Governors that will allow them to kick Postmaster General Louis DeJoy to the curb.
With the American rescue plan signed, sealed and delivered, the Biden administration can now turn its attention to repairing the postal service by undoing the damage caused by Trump and DeJoy.
Republicans have been trying to bankrupt the USPS for decades in hopes of privatizing mail delivery. There is a bipartisan bill in place that would remove the absurd pre-funding requirement for pensions that Republicans put in place in 2006 to bankrupt the USPS, but before that bill takes center stage, Trump’s Postmaster General Louis DeJoy needs to be shown the door.
