Changes At US Postal Service

October 24, 2019

Megan Brennan, the Postmaster General of the United States Postal Service (USPS), announced last week that she will retire in January 2020. Brennan has had a long career in the Postal Service, starting as a letter carrier over thirty years ago. She was the first woman to serve as Postmaster General, assuming the role in 2015. The Postmaster General serves as the chief executive of the USPS, and oversees postal operations.

In addition to Brennan’s departure, USPS has three relatively new members serving on its Board of Governors-  John McLeon Barger, Ron A. Bloom, and Roman Martinez IV were confirmed by the Senate in August. The Board of Governors will select the next Postmaster General.
