Busting Myths: A citizen vs. Louis DeJoy and his crippling of the U.S. Postal Service

For more than 18 months I have suffered failing service from the U.S. Postal Service. Beginning with Donald Trump’s appointment of the unqualified campaign contributor Louis DeJoy, who also invests heavily in competing delivery services, my household along with countless others no longer receives either daily or on-time deliveries. DeJoy claimed that he acted to control costs and cover the poorly designed postal workers’ retirement fund. But at the same time, he actively cut back on legally mandated services and endorsed Trump’s and his allies’ partisan and illegal efforts to repudiate legally endorsed mail-in balloting (which my household has done for more than a decade legally and without incident, and safely during the pandemic).

Denver Area Postal Workers Protest As Postmaster Louis DeJoy Visits Mile High City

DENVER (KCNC) — More than a dozen workers from various post offices in the Denver metro area protested Wednesday as U.S. Postmaster General Louis DeJoy visited the Mile High City to speak with area supervisors.

There was no guarantee that any bill to rescue the oldest federal agency from possible collapse would make it to President Joe Biden’s desk. The final version doesn’t transform the Postal Service like progressives wanted — but at least it rejects calls from conservatives to further privatize the system. In what amounts to a miracle these days, the bill to fix the problems that left the USPS teetering on the brink of collapse got bipartisan support in the House and Senate.

Sometime in the late 1990s, the West Virginia postmasters held their annual convention in Harpers Ferry. They invited my boss, the Superintendent of Harpers Ferry National Historical Park, to welcome them. He asked me to go on his behalf, which I was happy to do. At that time, this was...
