President Biden announced on Friday he is replacing two officials to the U.S. Postal Service’s governing board, including its Democratic chairman Ron Bloom.
It was a surprise to the USPS and to Congress, as it casts doubt on the future of the current Postmaster General Louis DeJoy.
The White House made an official announcement that it would nominate Daniel Tangherlini, who served as the administrator of the General Services Administration during the Obama administration, to replace Bloom.
Bloom is a Democrat, but was appointed by Trump, and was vocally supportive of Louis DeJoy as prices were raised and mail delivery slowed permanently under his leadership.
Derek Kan, a Republican and the former deputy director of the Office of Management and Budget, would replace Republican John M. Barger.
