Postmaster General Pauses Operational Changes Until After the Election

moving forward with the truth eraoflightdotcomIn the wake of threats from Democrats and protesters surrounding his homes in Washington, DC, and Greensboro, North Carolina, Postmaster General Louis DeJoy said there will be no operational changes at the United States Postal Service until after the Nov. 3, 2020, presidential election.

I came to the Postal Service to make changes to secure the success of this organization and its long-term sustainability. I believe significant reforms are essential to that objective, and work toward those reforms will commence after the election.

In the meantime, there are some longstanding operational initiatives — efforts that predate my arrival at the Postal Service — that have been raised as areas of concern as the nation prepares to hold an election in the midst of a devastating pandemic. To avoid even the appearance of any impact on election mail, I am suspending these initiatives until after the election is concluded.

He also announced “the expansion of our current leadership taskforce on election mail to enhance our ongoing work and partnership with state and local election officials in jurisdictions throughout the country” to “help ensure that election officials and voters are well informed and fully supported by the Postal Service.”

DeJoy has agreed to testify before the House Committee on Oversight and Reform on Aug. 24. It is unclear if that hearing will go forward based on this development.

    The Post office is not a business that is to make a profit.Does the FBI make a profit or any other parts of the government. What is going on is Trump want’s to help him win the election. Why would his new postmaster start doing this. Number one he Lou Dejoy know nothing about running the post office. but he has given big to Trump and all republicans running for office.

    The republican party has for years tried to rip down the post office and turn it over to a private business for the money it pulls in. In 2008 the republican pass a law that makes the post office always pay 10 years in advance for the retirement plan they have.No other federal dept has to do that but the post office. That is why they have had trouble in the past few years they have made the payments. But it has taken money they need to run the system.
    Why is DeJoy pulling equipment out of the building that does the separation of mail faster the the workers. The machine cost big money but Trump boy wants them out. Why is he taking down the mail boxes that people use to send there mail.Why is he cutting hours for the workers.
    Because he has a private company the he has stock in that could take over the mail like a FED Ex. Trump said do the dirty work and if all goes good you become a billionaire in the private sector.

    Trump is banking on winning any way he can, he did it in 2016 with the Russians read the Republican Senate Intelligence Report. All the big republicans know it and have been lying to the people. Do not take my word do some homework and read it your self.
