The Postal Service is facing serious and substantial challenges: declining mail volume, increased use of the Internet for bill payment and presentment, a lingering recession and legislative constraints on how and when we can close Post Offices or what types of products we can sell at retail.

After four months of intense research and discussion, the Postal Service will announce an action plan to address these concerns, as well as a number of steps necessary to close a substantial gap by the year 2020.

The Postal Service has decided on a future path that calls for greater business model flexibility and changes to the way it does business.

Potter is not part of the solution. He is a huge part of the problem. I would call for NEW leadership, but we don't have any competent leadership now. FIRE POTTER! The sooner the better!

PMG Potter has actually done a good job. USPS would be showing a profit were it not for the $75B theft of cash by politicians

The USPS is the worst run corporation in America, today! We were angry about B of A and AIG giving bonuses, bud the USPS, running deeply in the red, continues to give bonuses. Feds, control your own act. Yes, and Potter got his, too. For sitting on his fat green chair and doing nothing. Cronyism, nepotism, veteran disparagement, harassment of disabled employees, rampant sex harassment, you name it. How about the member of sr. management who was caught on camera in the USPS facility parking lot, trying to run down with his car, a woman who filed a harassment case against him? They let him retire with full benefits. Also, they have really well-paid attorneys. Fire Potter and all of his cronies.

Make Donald Trump postmaster general for one year and let him fire losers on national TV. The place will be running in the Black in 12 months.

Potter was put in there for one reason and one reason only. That reason is to force privatization.
This is what Heritage Group and
most conservatives have strived for for decades.
