Postmaster general Louis DeJoy gets DePushback

August 8, 2023

In response to changes to the United States Postal Service scheduled for next month, state senator Michelle Hinchey is calling for the reversal of the USPS consolidation plan, referring to it as “poorly conceived and unnecessarily expedited.”

“The United State Postal Service is one of the most essential public goods we have,” said Hinchey, “and we will not stand by while this vital service is threatened.”

Citing the potential closure of numerous local post offices as well as their conversion into sorting and delivery centers, Hinchey released the contents of a letter which she and state senator Rob Rolison have sent to postmaster general Louis DeJoy demanding a pause in the September plan until clear answers are provided as to how these changes could affect rural residents, seniors and postal workers.
