Bush eyes former PMG for USPS board

President Bush intends to nominate former Postmaster General Albert Casey as a member of the U.S. Postal Service Board of Governors, the Alliance of Nonprofit Mailers reports. Casey’s controversial tenure as PMG tenure lasted less than a year, from January to August 1986. Yet during that brief time he managed to lop off several layers of USPS management and a number of expenses, says Alliance executive director Neal Denton.

“Most postal watchers expect Casey to shake things up a bit—and that might be a good thing,” Denton says. If Casey is elected to the board, his term would expire December 2009. He is currently a distinguished executive in residence at the Edwin L. Cox School of Business at Southern Methodist University.
