Lt. Gov. Mike Cooney Responds to Reports of Partisan Connection to Damaging USPS Policy Changes

Cooney: “If these reports are true, that is downright un-American”

MONTANA –  In response to reporting that USPS policy changes may have had partisan connections, Lt. Gov. Mike Cooney issued the following statement:

“Montanans rely on dependable mail delivery 365 days a year, and reports that changes to the agency might have a partisan motivation – if true – are beyond the pale,” said Lt. Gov. Mike Cooney. “After failing to speak out against these harmful changes and voting against emergency funding to support the Postal Service, my opponent owes Montanans answers: why won’t he stand up to defend reliable mail service for all Montanans?”

Lt. Gov. Mike Cooney has been speaking out against the removal of mail collection boxes and processing machines for weeks. This week, Cooney applauded Governor Bullock’s lawsuit against Postmaster General Louis DeJoy over his damaging changes to USPS mail delivery policy,  and earlier this month, he rallied with local American Postal Workers Union representatives to protest the harmful changes. 

Cooney’s opponent – New Jersey millionaire Greg Gianforte – voted against emergency funding for USPS twice and praised Louis DeJoy as a “logistics expert.”
