Postmaster General DeJoy gives himself an ‘A’ grade despite widespread criticism
Embattled Postmaster General Louis DeJoy said he would give himself an “A” for his stewardship of the US Postal Service, despite what he has acknowledged were “unacceptable” mail and package delays during the peak holiday season.
Faced with growing criticism of his handling of USPS operations, DeJoy was grilled during a congressional hearing Thursday about what grade he should receive for his efforts.
At first, DeJoy resisted grading himself, saying “I don’t give grades, I just work,” later adding “I’m not going to give myself a grade.”
After being pressed by Democratic Rep. Mark Pocan of Wisconsin, DeJoy finally said: “I would give myself an ‘A’ for bringing strategy and the planning and effort to here.”
