Connolly Calls USPS Reorganization Response Letter a Smokescreen

Congressman Gerry Connolly (D-VA), Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Government Operations, released the following statement in response to a letter sent by USPS that fails to explain the rational and analysis for Postmaster General DeJoy’s Trojan Horse reorganization plan and service delays:


“The is yet another smokescreen and shallow attempt by the USPS to flout congressional accountability. But for the President’s veto threat, the USPS very well would have had federal assistance included in the CARES Act to address the financial crisis exacerbated by the public health pandemic. Postmaster General DeJoy could better use his time by shelving his “reorganization plan” and instead imploring Republicans and the President to provide the Postal Service the financial resources needed to ensure a smooth process of mail in ballots for the November election.”
