Postmaster General Defies Lawmakers: ‘I Am Not Going Anywhere’

Postmaster General Louis Dejoy doesn’t agree with the general consensus that he’s done a bad enough to resign his job.

According to Fox News, ” DeJoy told lawmakers Wednesday that he plans to stick around for ‘a long time’ even after acknowledging that the U.S. Postal Service had failed Americans in recent months.”

When the House Committee suggested they wanted to know an end date for Dejoy’s time at the postoffice, he glibly stated, “Get used to me.”

Fox News reports:

DeJoy was appointed by a bipartisan board of governors to head the federal agency in May 2020. However, since then, he has come under heavy criticism for a series of operational changes that slowed mail before the 2020 elections amid the coronavirus pandemic. The Postal Service came into the spotlight again as it struggled to handle the holiday season surge of packages and mail.

During the recent House Committee meeting, Dejoy admitted the USPS “fell far short of meeting our service targets…This is unacceptable, and I apologize to those customers who felt the impact of our delays.”
