Pingree on Postmaster DeJoy’s Policies of Delaying Mail Delivery


Rep. Chellie Pingree (D) Supports Investigation into Postmaster DeJoy’s Policies That Have Slowed Mail Delivery.

US Mail Delivery Service Has Faltered Under the Leadership of Postmaster Louis DeJoy, a Supporter of The Donald.

“Every day my office receives dozens of complaints from constituents whose mail has been delayed or not delivered at all.  This is unacceptable.  Full stop.  Louis DeJoy has implemented policies that are deliberately slowing down mail, eroding the integrity and relilability of America’s beloved Postal Service,” said Congresswoman Chellie Pingree (D).  “This is not a probelm for Maine alone.  Amercians all over the country are feeling the impact of Postmaster DeJoy’s misguided leadership when their paychecks aren’t delivered, bills arrive past the due dates and medication doesn’t arrive on time,” according to a press release received from the Pingree office today.  “I’ve co-sponsored this resolution because enough is enough.”

Congresswoman Chellie Pingree (D) announced in the same press release that she has signed on to a concurrent resolution objecting to increased postage rates and policies instituted by US Postal Service (USPS) Postmaster General Louis DeJoy that are slowing down mail delivery calls.  The Resolution calls for a stop to these policies pending further investigation. The resolution H. Con Res. 54 was introduced by Congresswoman Kweisi Mfume (D-Md) and is cosponsored by 17 Democratic Representatives.

DeJoy was installed as Postmaster General during the Trump Administration.  He was controversial from the start because he was a financial supporter of Trump’s who had no experience in the field. He was critized for instituting mail delivery cut backs just before the 2020 election, affecting the return of ballots in the presidential election. He has been under investigation for a conflict of interest.  Don’t know if that investigation has been concluded.
