February 8, 2022 Meeting
The U.S. Postal Service should renounce any taxpayer funds for the purchase of electric vehicles and related infrastructure, estimated to cost $7 billion over the next decade. You have $23 billion or so in cash and are projected to be break-even by 2023.
If you need more funds, remember you are by law supposed to be self-funded. Your large retail customers, who through negotiated service agreements get big price breaks compared to the rest of us, should be assessed for the added costs. The Lexington Institute has documented packages take up nearly seven times as much space in delivery vehicles as letters do.
Furthermore, and importantly, your decision about which vehicles to use should be driven by what will best serve your customers and ensure prompt delivery. Thank you.
