Received this e-mail today from U.S. Senator Mark Warner’s (D. VA) re-election campaign:
The U.S. Postal Service is under attack by the Trump administration.
Postmaster General Louis DeJoy has done everything in his power to undermine a service that millions of Americans rely on: removing mailboxes, cutting staff overtime hours, and getting rid of mail sorting machines.
For the last few weeks I’ve been hearing from constituents who were bearing the brunt of these changes to USPS. I heard from folks who were told they were late on bills they never received, and folks who were waiting on important medications. I also heard from folks who wanted me to do more to protect this critical service.
So, here’s what I’m doing: I’m calling on Postmaster General Louis DeJoy to resign.
From what I’ve heard from Virginians and what is being reported across the nation, it’s clear that he’s not the right person for the job. We need someone in that post who will do right by the American people and who understands that the role of the postal service is to serve — service is even in the name.
Millions of people across the country rely on the postal service for their medicine, to pay their bills, and come November, to cast their ballots. I’ll do everything in my power to make sure you can keep relying on this critical service.
— Mark Warner
