The Postal Service Board of Governors has selected Louis DeJoy to serve as the nation's 75th Postmaster General, effective June 15. DeJoy, a business executive with more than 35 years of experience, previously served as chairman and chief executive officer of New Breed Logistics. He has spent decades collaborating with USPS, Boeing, Verizon, Disney, United Technologies and other public and private companies to provide supply chain logistics, program management and transportation support.

With a 35-year career in the logistics business, DeJoy said he has "worked closely" with the Postal Service for decades. "Having worked closely with the Postal Service for many years, I have a great appreciation for this institution and the dedicated workers who faithfully execute its mission," DeJoy said.

It will be an incredible honor to serve as Postmaster General, and I commit myself to upholding the Postal Service's cherished role in our nation." 5/8/20
Good Morning! 3/20/2020
In looking at all of the reports that are coming out and all of the changes and closures that businesses throughout the country are making, I have made a decision that we will be taking steps to protect those of us that work here at the national office. As of tomorrow, March 21, 2020, the national office will remain open, but we will have limited staff on site. Normally, there will be one person on site during normal business hours, Monday through Friday 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM with varying times for lunch breaks, of course. The remainder of the staff, including me, will be teleworking and will be available on our cell phones, or via email if you need to reach us. So, if you call the national office and do not get an answer, you can either leave a message, or you can reach out to us via cell phone numbers, or email, and we will get back to you as soon as possible. At this time, we have no way of knowing how long this will last, but we will send out messaging and keep up to date postings on the website as the situation changes.
NOTE: The best way to communicate with us, will be via email.
