WASHINGTON — Amid rising concern about the health of the U.S. Postal Service ahead of the Nov. 3 election, David Williams, who resigned in April as vice chair of the USPS Board of Governors, is scheduled to give a private briefing to a group of House Democrats on Thursday, two people familiar with the plan told NBC News.
The two people said Williams, who will appear before the House Progressive Caucus, had stepped down amid what he considered President Donald Trump’s undue influence over the USPS independent Board of Governors and the process of selecting the new postmaster general.
“Williams was very concerned about the politicization of the postal service. He was someone we looked to to stand up and protect the postal service,” a senior Democratic aide told NBC News.
