Coming from a postal family, Congressman Lynch is a tireless advocate for our nation’s postal workforce. He has introduced bipartisan legislation in the House to ensure that the Postal Service remain an independent government agency and is not subject to privatization. He is also supportive of legislation to preserve at least six days of mail delivery per week.

The emergence of the coronavirus pandemic in the U.S. has placed even greater strains on the Postal Service as our nation’s postal workers continue to deliver essential medical supplies to our first responders and frontline healthcare personnel and prescription medicine to our most vulnerable citizens. In preparation for the 2020 election and the 2020 Decennial Census, they are also processing critical Vote-By-Mail information and Census Bureau mailings.

Given these additional challenges, Congressman Lynch strongly supports the inclusion of robust pandemic relief funding for the Postal Service. He is also strongly opposed to any changes – including cuts to postal employee work hours and overtime and the removal of mail processing machine and mailboxes. Congressman Lynch is a cosponsor and voted in favor of the Delivering for America Act¸ urgent legislation that prevents the Postal Service from implementing any changes to delay the mail, close or consolidate any post office, reduce facility standards, or undermine nationwide customer service.
