New U.S. Postal board chair backs DeJoy, urges Congress to approve reforms
WASHINGTON, Jan 12 (Reuters) – The new chair of the U.S. Postal Board of Governors endorsed the leadership of Postmaster General Louis DeJoy and called on lawmakers to approve a sweeping financial reform measure.
The board on Wednesday unanimously elected Roman Martinez, a retired investment banker as chair after President Joe Biden declined to renominate Ron Bloom to a new term on the board.
Martinez, who was nominated by then President Donald Trump to the board, praised DeJoy’s tenure. He is the “person to carry out the restructuring that is needed… He is a transformational leader.”
