    Mr. Barger, do the right thing and get rid of Louis DeJoy. We don’t need a HUGE DONATOR to Trump in there sabotaging our Postal system. YOU will be held accountable and we will be looking into bringing you forth. Start looking for another position OUTSIDE the government if you don’t do right by the PEOPLE. I need my meds and my checks.

    Thank you for sitting on the Board of Governors for the United States Postal Service. It is good to know there are people overseeing the postmaster general right now, as we are witnessing in real time some dangerous, disturbing, and illegal behavior emanating from his office.

    Many of the recent changes enacted by Louis DeJoy are clearly not in the best interest of the American public, whom the USPS has a constitutional mandate to serve. Removing mailboxes and equipment instead of increasing these services during a pandemic and an election year is criminal. Delayed mail delivery times have a severe negative impact for all Americans — most especially those who are desperately waiting for pay checks, or veterans waiting for prescriptions through the mail. As a Registered Nurse I can confidently say that these consequences will quickly snowball into yet another social and public health emergency for our country.

    President Trump admitted in a recent news broadcast that his intent is to disrupt the functionality of USPS to the point that mail-in voting will be ineffective for the November election. As you know, Amendment 1701 of Chapter 83 of the United States Code states: “Whoever knowingly and willfully obstructs or retards the passage of the mail, or any carrier or conveyance carrying the mail, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than six months, or both.” President Trump has admitted to intending to willfully obstruct the passage of the mail, and Louis DeJoy is carrying out his orders to cause this willful obstruction. That’s illegal under federal law. The Board of Governors has a duty to remove Louis DeJoy immediately, and do everything in it’s power to ensure a safe and free election for those who need to use mail-in ballots. It is our constitutional right to be able to vote freely, and without threat of harm or delay.

    Thank you for your attention to this important matter. I look forward to receiving a response from your office as soon as possible.
