– Coalition Working to Save the Post Office

May 8, 2024 | by The Jeuns

President Biden is facing calls to fill the postal board of governors with new appointees, but the process is not as simple as it may seem. Postal board members serve fixed terms, with only one member’s term expiring each year. Currently, there is only one Republican-appointed Governor whose term is set to expire this year.

Furthermore, the hopes of passing laws to ensure the safety, security, and accessibility of voting by mail, as well as introducing new revenue streams like postal banking, rest on the Democrats controlling both the House and Senate. Without majority control in Congress, these legislative initiatives may face significant obstacles.

As stakeholders continue to advocate for a more proactive approach to addressing these issues within the postal service, the upcoming appointments to the postal board of governors will be critical in shaping the future of the US Postal Service. President Biden’s selections will play a key role in determining the direction and priorities of the postal service in the years to come.
