  1. Presorted mail??? Still has to be sorted…. Full price is the only way… If they don’t like it then let them go to fed ex… It costs more….

  2. I was privy to hearing him on a conference call once a few years ago he couldnt recognize talent if it bit him on his ass.

    He was a change agent all right give as many discounts to business mail customers even if it broke the USPS financials

  3. Is he the one that let’s mailers wrap bulk mail with string and rubber bands that jam up the APPS ? If he is it looks like the practice will just keep going on. More over time,delayed mail,and destroyed mail. He needs to move into the 21 century.

  4. this is the same type of instutitionalized corruption that has destroyed the post office. same type of thing congressman do becoming lobbists and generals going to work for defense contractors. the tail wags the dog.

    greed & corruption by these types has its fair share of blame in the rise, fall. and decline of the United States of America. hope this bum falls on his face.

    5 year rule should apply…..can not work for any private mailing house that you had contact with if you were a postal mismanager after retirement. conflict of interest. we all know of the mismanagers who got caught by usps postal inspectors for taking bribes of all sourts from private mailing houses….and there were plenty through the years….because after all it would be the right thing to do!

  5. This is exactly what is wrong in government. These carpetbaggers who are in the management positions of power are all for themselves. Decisions that are made to supposedly help the US Postal Service and be in the best interest of the USPS usually is not. To much money and greed in them there hills. So next time you hear about how much money is spent on Labor Cost you would be wise to re-search your facts and separate the cost to the Bargaining Unit Employees versus the expense and cost to PCES and EAS Management positions. The few in management receive more compensation in wages and bonuses then the larger number of employees who are responsible for the processing and delivery of the mail.
