Connolly Statement on Today's Postmaster General Announcement
Today, Congressman Gerry Connolly, Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Government Operations, released the following statement after Postmaster General Louis DeJoy announced suspension of his operational changes.
“Postmaster General DeJoy cannot put the genie back in the bottle. Sunshine in the form of public pressure has forced Mr. DeJoy to completely reverse himself. While this is a victory for all voters and every American that relies on the USPS, congressional oversight cannot be interrupted. If Mr. DeJoy has nothing to hide, he will come to Congress with answers to our questions about the service disruptions that have defined his tenure as Postmaster General. Accountability is the cornerstone of our democracy.”
