Lexington’s Paul Steidler took issue with a May 11 editorial in the News & Record of Greensboro, North Carolina which called for bailing out the U.S. Postal Service while also criticizing the incoming Postmaster General, Greensboro resident Louis DeJoy.
Steidler argued that the Postal Service does not need a bailout, but rather to restructure its operations and adopt a new business model. He pointed out that the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO), Congress’ independent auditor, stressed this in a May 8 study. Steidler also said, “DeJoy’s highly regarded business acumen will provide a jolt of fresh thinking and energy to the Postal Service, as it recovers and thrives,” and he highlighted DeJoy’s reputation as a “widely respected philanthropist.”
