Louis DeJoy, appointed by Donald Trump

WASHINGTON, DC — Postmaster General Louis DeJoy issued the following statement this week after attacks on the postal service by his boss, Donald Trump, and claims that he is dismantling business operations:

“The United States Postal Service will play a critical role this year in delivering election mail for millions of voters across the country. There has been a lot of discussion recently about whether the Postal Service is ready, willing and able to meet this challenge.

I want to make a few things clear:

The Postal Service is ready today to handle whatever volume of election mail it receives this fall. Even with the challenges of keeping our employees and customers safe and healthy as they operate amid a pandemic, we will deliver the nation’s election mail on time and within our well-established service standards. The American public should know that this is our number one priority between now and election day. The 630,000 dedicated women and men of the Postal Service are committed, ready and proud to meet this sacred duty.

I am announcing today the expansion of our current leadership taskforce on election mail to enhance our ongoing work and partnership with state and local election officials in jurisdictions throughout the country. Leaders of our postal unions and management associations have committed to joining this taskforce to ensure strong coordination throughout our organization. Because of the unprecedented demands of the 2020 election, this taskforce will help ensure that election officials and voters are well informed and fully supported by the Postal Service.

I came to the Postal Service to make changes to secure the success of this organization and its long-term sustainability. I believe significant reforms are essential to that objective, and work toward those reforms will commence after the election. In the meantime, there are some longstanding operational initiatives — efforts that predate my arrival at the Postal Service — that have been raised as areas of concern as the nation prepares to hold an election in the midst of a devastating pandemic. To avoid even the appearance of any impact on election mail, I am suspending these initiatives until after the election is concluded.

I want to assure all Americans of the following:

Retail hours at Post Offices will not change.
Mail processing equipment and blue collection boxes will remain where they are.
No mail processing facilities will be closed.
And we reassert that overtime has, and will continue to be, approved as needed.
In addition, effective Oct. 1, we will engage standby resources in all areas of our operations, including transportation, to satisfy any unforeseen demand.

I am grateful for the commitment and dedication of all the men and women of the Postal Service, and the trust they earn from the American public every day, especially as we continue to contend with the impacts of COVID-19. As we move forward, they will have the full support of our organization throughout the election.”

    DeJoy came to the USPS to dismantle & destroy it for his own personal gain. Kind of a little reward for him for supporting his buddy Trump.

        Yes. He has taken out sorting machines that makes the mail move faster, and mail drop boxes to make it harder on people to mail there bills, etc.

        Here’s the thing people of all parties use the mail. They use it to to receive medications/prescriptions, receive and pay bills, legal information, subscription magazines, mail in ballots (that the president is trying to surpass because the polls show he is losing).

        Fear is not going to STOP me from voting whether in person or by mail.

            Did Obama remove the boxes right before an election? No. Did Obama remove the sorting machines? No. You seem to be the one who tells half truths.
