Addressing DeJoy, Bush noted that 35 percent of postal workers are people of color, asking him “Do you see it as a problem that the Board of Governors of the United States Postal Service looks like a millionaire white boys’ club?”
The current board includes a coal lobbyist and three investment bankers.
DeJoy responded that, “The Postal Service would love to have a diverse board that reflects its population,” adding that their appointment was the purview of the White House and the Senate.
“The quicker we get some new board members from the administration, the less we can talk about this and move on to the plan and the real, real problems that we need to fix here,” he added, according to the Post.
