Biden Takes First Steps to Exchange USPS Postmaster Normal Louis DeJoy

President Joe Biden took the first steps this week to replace USPS Postmaster General Louis DeJoy.

In a statement on Monday, the White House said the president has moved to fill vacancies on the Postal Service Board of Governors, which has the power to appoint a new Postmaster General.

“Only the Board of Governors of the US Postal Service has authority to replace the Postmaster General,” the statement said. “However, the president can nominate governors who fill vacancies on the board pending confirmation by the Senate.”

The statement stated that there are currently three vacancies on the board. In addition, a fourth nomination would replace an existing member serving a hold-over year.

“President Biden is focused on filling these vacancies and appointing officials who reflect his dedication to serving the US Postal Service – who can fulfill the Post’s vital universal service obligation,” added the White House.

Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, appointed during President Donald Trump’s tenure, came under fire after accused of attempting to undermine the role of the postal service in the 2020 election.
