We know that Biden’s spokesman, Michael Gwin, told us on February 19, 2021. That Joe Biden was not at all satisfied with the current leadership of the postal service and the challenges it faces. He also added he is determined to solve the problem of vacancies. And will certainly fill them with high-potential people so that the USPS can effectively fulfill its vital mission for the country.

- Anton Hajjar, Former General Counsel of the American Postal Service.
- Amber McReynolds, head of the National Vote Reception Institute.
The nomination came after a busy day on Capitol Hill. When DeJoy appeared before the House Oversight Committee to discuss improving the USPS. DeJoy tussles with Democratic lawmakers over woefully slow mail delivery, the 2020 election. and his upcoming 10-year plan to rehabilitate the postal service.
