Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin released the following statement opposing the nomination of Ron Bloom to another term on the United State Postal Service Board of Governors. Bloom is currently the Chairman of the Board of Governors as a one-year holdover on the board since last December. Baldwin is a longtime critic of Louis DeJoy, Postmaster General and Chief Executive Officer of the United States Postal Service, and supports replacing Bloom on the USPS Board of Governors.

“Our Postal Service is, by law, a fundamental service provided to the people by our government, authorized by the Constitution, created by an Act of Congress, and supported by the people. I don’t believe that Postmaster General DeJoy understands who he works for— the American people. I wanted to see him go last year when he ordered changes that led to delayed mail for Wisconsin families, seniors, veterans, and businesses and I oppose Ron Bloom’s nomination to a new term because I would like to see a new Postal Board of Governors show DeJoy the door and bring on a new Postmaster General.”
