Urge USPS board to appoint new leader committed to public Postal Service

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Dec. 6, 2019) — The public service mission of the U.S. Postal Service has made it the most popular federal agency. However, this public good is at risk if we don’t all act soon.

In June 2018, the Trump administration announced proposals to privatize the USPS. Now Postmaster General Megan Brennan has announced her departure as Postmaster General in January 2020.

The Postmaster General has wide powers to shape the mission of USPS and there is a real risk that Brennan’s successor could hand over parts of the service to private, profit-making corporations and prepare it for a wholesale sell-off.

The people will rightly expect a new Postmaster General who will uphold the Postal Service’s public mission and will work to preserve and enhance our national treasure.
