Postal Board of Governors

The Postal Service has a Board of Governors that is responsible for major decisions about the Postal Service’s operations, policies, and expenditures. The Board is made up of eleven members, which includes the Postmaster General and Deputy Postmaster General. Nine of the members, the Governors, are appointed by the President of the United States and confirmed by the Senate. On February 24th, President Joe Biden nominated Anton Hajjar, Amber McReynolds and Ron Stroman to fill three of the four openings. Hajjar, McReynolds, and Stroman better reflect the American people and will bring diverse perspectives to the Board. On April 28th, the Senate Homeland Security & Governmental Affairs Committee (HSGAC) held a business meeting to consider pending nominations to the Postal Board of Governors.

Following a roll call vote on each of the nominees, the nominations of Hajjar, McReynolds, and Stroman were reported favorably to the Senate HSGAC. In the month of May over three separate votes, the full Senate confirmed all three of President Biden’s nominations. They will all be sworn in to serve on the Postal BOG. This legislative priority was updated on May 28th. Thank you for making calls and emailing members of Congress to push these nominations forward. Now confirmed, Hajjar, McReynolds, and Stroman have the power to:

  • Push for speedier delivery
  • Fight against mail slow-downs and post office closures
  • Defend and expand postal services
  • Keep the Postal Service committed to vibrant, public and universal postal service
  • Work to ensure election ballots are processed and delivered on time
