and WHEREAS, Postmaster DeJoy on March 23, 2021, unveiled his plan: Delivering for America-Our Vision and Ten-Year Plan to Achieve Financial Stability and Service Excellence, which institutionalized higher postage rates, slower services, and reduced post office hours as a means of saving money;

and WHEREAS, in April, 2021 the Postal Service awarded a $120 million contract to XPO Logistics to oversee operations at two “ crucial” sorting and distribution facilities in Atlanta and Washington D.C. while DeJoy’s family businesses continued to lease four North Carolina office buildings to XPO which could amount to $23,7 million in rent payments over the next ten years,

We will become much more efficient and operate at a lower cost. We will support mail innovation and add more value to each mail piece. We will grow volume and fill our trucks with mail and packages to better sustain our business. We are working hard to be the high-performing organization you need us to be, and we know we can be.” DeJoy will partially accomplish this by eliminating post offices in New York City, Chicago, Philadelphia, Detroit, Cleveland and other locations where there are “40 locations within a tenmile radius.”,

and WHEREAS, it is now clear that if Postmaster General Louis DeJoy remains in office that postal customer will be receiving slower service while having to travel to a “centralized “ location to conduct postal business.
