President Trump Nominates Three to USPS Board of Governors

Posted by Bob Levi on 10/30/17
On October 26, President Donald Trump made three nominations to the U.S. Postal Service Board of Governors. Currently, the only two board members are Postmaster General Megan Brennan and Deputy Postmaster General Ron Stroman.

The Trump nominees include former Postal Service Inspector General David Williams, former Republican National Committee Chairman Robert Duncan, and Pennsylvania businessman Calvin Tucker. David Williams has extensive postal experience in evaluating and making recommendations regarding  postal operations and finances. Robert Duncan is a former Kentucky banker, and served as chairman of the Tennessee Valley Authority (a position held by former PMG Marvin Runyan) and chairman of American Crossroads PAC, a major GOP super-PAC. Calvin Tucker has been the CEO and held a number of executive positions in the financial industry, and co-hosted a Philadelphia-based talk-show.

The nominees will be referred to the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. At the time of referral the committee will, in all likelihood, schedule prompt hearings, with committee full Senate consideration later this year.
