Pascrell wants DeJoy out as Postmaster General

By Ashley Gallagher, July 23 2021 8:45 pm

Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-Paterson) repeated his call to fire U.S. Postmaster General Louis DeJoy after the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) called the plan to rebuild the United States Post Office “unreliable data based on unproven assumptions.”

“DeJoy’s so-called plan to rebuild USPS will not strengthen it but instead make it even more feeble. Louis DeJoy should have been fired a long time ago. Americans demand a Post Office that works for them,” Pascrell said.  That starts with firing the pre-Biden board members who have enabled this damage and then removing Louis DeJoy.”

DeJoy has proposed the USPS in a ten-year that intends to slow delivery standards by 30% and increase the price of postage. The PRC says there is no evidence that DeJoy’s plan will hut customer satisfaction but has not adapted its plan to address the concerns by customers and stakeholders. All in all, the PRC found there would be unlikely improvement to the financial condition.

Pascrell has been vocal about calling on the president to fire the Postal Board of Governors and has been outspoken about his distaste of DeJoy’s ten-year plan.
