Louis DeJoy Has Been Chosen to Be the New Postmaster General

May 23, 2020 — 

Thank you to everyone who has signed and supported the USPS during these historic times. Please continue to share it so we may show our continued support for the USPS, its 500,000+ workers and all the businesses and people that rely on it. 

The USPS is still in jeopardy. Louis DeJoy, a Trump donor, has been chosen to be the new Postmaster General. This casts a long shadow on vote by mail in November.

Who is Louis DeJoy?
Mr. DeJoy, who is originally from Brooklyn, has also spent decades as a major donor to Republicans across the country. This year he has already donated about $360,000 to Trump Victory, a super PAC supporting Mr. Trump’s re-election bid, and thousands to the Republican National Committee, according to federal filings. Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, a watchdog group, estimated that Mr. DeJoy had donated more than $2.5 million to Republican state parties, committees and candidates since 2016.

Additionally I highly recommend checking out the following website:

You'll find a concentrated source of information with a number of great articles about saving the USPS. I recommend the following two:

HR 2382 is a bill that will alleviate some of the financial pressure the USPS is facing. If you're looking to take action, contact your Representatives and voice your support.
