    Louis DeJoy has no prior USPS experience. His desire is to slow service, raise prices, and fail to push for more uses for the myriad post offices in the US, such as banking centers, AND Most Distressing of All the Distressing things about DeJoy [ put in place by the sore loser of the last election ] is his numerous attempts to prevent POOR Americans from voting. DeJoy must be replaced.

    Mr. Martinez, please take action to direct or remove Mr. DeJoy, in light the now-evident political nature of the DeJoy appointment and his aggressive actions to constrain the postal system at precisely the time when maximum reliability will be needed for elections. Your duty of governance on the Board requires as much. Thank you.

    Dear Roman,
    I am a member of the league of women voters. I am writing for myself to share my confusion as to why you would let a highly political appointment by Trump sabotage our post office. This is beyond all else that has happened in the three years of disaster. Voting is our democratic right and it is an institution that should be funded and respected. As a private investor you understand the issues that surround a healthy business and the importance of a board member to over see what the company is doing. step in before it is to late. This is not a joke.

    Mr. Martinez , 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.

    I implore you to do what you can to keep President Trump from using the USPS as a bargaining chit. The Post Office is important for delivering voting ballots in a few weeks, for delivering prescription drugs, and many other things. We don’t need to upset a working system for an unimportant political goal.

    Thanks in advance for doing the right thing.

    The USPS is such an important service for our country. You cannot allow all US citizens to be deprived of their income checks, medications, needed supplies and all necessary communications including mail in ballots. As a senior citizen, the USPS has been a vital part of my survival during these trying times.

    We need your help to prevent any disruption of the postal service especially during this pandemic.

  7. Lesa

    As a member of the USPS Board of Governors, you should not be complicit with any attempt to slow the mail service ahead of the 2020 election in an attempt to swing the vote for Trump. Find your patriotism! It is no surprise to find that you were associated with Lehman Bros.

  8. The USPS is being dismantled. DeJoy must resign. Not only is USPS being destroyed by DeJoy. the ability of citizens ability to vote is at risk.

    Aren’t you concerned about our democracy a citizen’s right to vote. Do the right thing Nd allow a dIr election.
