White House says it’s responding to pressure to act fast on USPS problems

(CNN)The White House is working to quickly fill the vacant seats on the Postal Service Board of Governors.

“President Biden has made clear his feelings on the current leadership of the Postal Service and the challenges it faces, and his team is working as quickly as possible to fill board vacancies so the USPS can effectively fulfill its vital mission for the country, and live up to the commitments made to its workers, ” Biden spokesperson Michael Gwin told CNN.
As the administration works to assure lawmakers with promises of action, another Democratic lawmaker is putting pressure on President Joe Biden to remove embattled Postmaster General Louis DeJoy. In a letter sent Friday, Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna Pressley slammed DeJoy for his “failed leadership,” accusing him of sabotaging the agency through changes that slowed down mail delivery.
