Received this e-mail today from U.S. Senator Chris Van Hollen’s (D. MD) re-election campaign:
The conservative mega-donor that Donald Trump appointed to lead the US Postal Service is still in charge of our mail — and still wreaking havoc.
Amid an ongoing slowdown of delivery service across the country, Postmaster General Louis DeJoy is now planning to slow down delivery times even further while raising postage rates.
Millions of Americans, and seniors in particular, rely on mail delivery for essential goods, medicines, bills, payments, and more. And reliable mail service has become even more important for many during this pandemic lockdown.
Last year Congress provided the USPS with $10 billion in funding to alleviate pandemic-induced delays and improve delivery times. But instead of working to make sure Americans are getting their mail on time, Postmaster DeJoy has been working to decimate the Postal Service and slow down the mail even further.
We can’t let this situation continue. DeJoy must be removed.
