The White House says it is moving to fill vacant seats on the Postal Service Board of Governors as quickly as possible.

"President [Joe] Biden has made clear his feelings on the current leadership of the Postal Service and the challenges it faces, and his team is working as quickly as possible to fill board vacancies so the USPS can effectively fulfill its vital mission for the country, and live up to the commitments made to its workers," Biden spokesperson Michael Gwin told CNN.

The White House statement came as Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., pushed Biden to replace Postmaster General Louis DeJoy. In a Friday letter to Biden, Pressley ripped DeJoy for his “failed leadership.”

"DeJoy continues to compromise the people's ability to receive everything from paychecks to life-saving medication, with new delay tactics and higher postage rates," she said.

Pressley is just one of 34 Democrats who have signed letters criticizing DeJoy and urging the president to take action, CNN noted.

In addition, Sen. Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill., has pressed Biden to replace the Postal Service's board of governors for their "silence" in response to DeJoy’s "campaign of sabotage." 

She added: “Unfortunately, as a result of recent and abject failure of leadership at the top of the USPS, it is in desperate need of repair in the public eye.”
