COLUMBUS, Ohio (WSYX) — More than a month after U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) demanded answers from the head of the U.S. Postal Service on ongoing mail thefts and delays, Sen. Brown told ABC6 On Your Side Problem Solvers that he received nothing but silence. Now, he’s sending out a second letter to the USPS Board of Governors to say action must be taken.
“This head of the postal service who came from three to four years ago has done major damage to the postal service,” Sen. Brown said to Problem Solver Lisa Rantala. “(Postmaster General) DeJoy has an arrogance that is second to none.”
The Board of Governors can remove DeJoy from his position. Currently, the majority of the members are appointees of President Joe Biden.
“I’m not telling them what to do,” said Sen. Brown. “I just want the postal service to be run better. I want to stop the mail theft.”
