    Since 2018 the Board of Governors has been staffed with nominations from the White House. It is short of 4 members and these four should be added to balance the Board. There should be at least a senior from the ranks, representing USPS; also a minority governor. These board is too easily MANIPULATED BY current admin.

    The current deliberate internal destruction of the US Postal System needs to seize immediately. The devastation to the elderly, home-bound citizens, those awaiting vital needed prescriptions, small businesses who rely on the post office to survive, CPA firms who are responsible for delivering tax returns on a timely basis are being severely hurt by this deliberate action. You have an obligation to the American people, to the country to the wonderful history of the USPS to take action.

    Mr. Duncan, 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.
