Postmaster General Defends 10-Year Modernization Plan

He says rewriting the “broken business model” requires “uncomfortable” decisions.

Postmaster General Louis DeJoy spoke at the National Postal Forum this week, where he defended the implementation of his 10-year improvement plan for the U.S. Postal Service (USPS). The postmaster spoke about the progress USPS has made since he took office in 2020, and how the service is taking steps to transform a “broken business model” into a financially reformed agency.

“Our efforts do not come without uncomfortable consequences, to our customers, to the American people, and to our employees. But they must be made,” Postmaster DeJoy said. “We are doing the necessary and important work for the nation, to develop a new path forward.”

Congress has scrutinized the postmaster this year for plans to raise USPS prices for a sixth time, and some of the short-term goals have been paused as a result. Even with these troubles, USPS remains the world’s largest delivery service, delivering about 44 percent of the world’s mail and operating post offices within five miles of 95 percent of the U.S. population.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Postmaster Dejoy to be prudent in his pursuit of USPS modernization methods.
  • For members of Congress as they seek to ensure the plans of the postmaster are beneficial to the nation.
