President Joe Biden has announced his intention to nominate two individuals to serve on the Postal Service Board of Governors:
• Derek T. Kan, former deputy director of the White House Office of Management and Budget during the Trump administration; and
• Daniel M. Tangherlini, former administrator of the General Services Administration during the Obama administration.
If confirmed by the U.S. Senate, Kan and Tangherlini would succeed John M. Barger and Ron A. Bloom, whose board terms are expiring.
The governors are the principal officers of the Postal Service. The board is similar to a board of directors, conducting long-range planning and setting strategic policies, among other duties.
