DECATUR, Ill. (WAND) — A Postal Service plan to eventually close processing and distribution centers in Springfield, Milan, Peoria and Champaign has Sen. Tammy Duckworth, (D-Illinois), calling on President Biden to replace the entire postal service board.

The Postal Service has put current plans on pause through the end of 2024. Senator Duckworth tells WAND News she will keep working to save the facilities and the dozens of jobs needed to operate them. Meanwhile, she is highly critical of Postmaster General Louis DeJoy and believes firing the current board would allow a new board to replace DeJoy.

“He has been someone who has really made decisions that would gut the post office. And he’s trying to, for many years now, privatize the post office,” Duckworth told WAND’s Doug Wolfe on Thursday.
