President Bush Nominates New Postal Governor

Share this content:
President George W. Bush has nominated former postmaster general Albert Casey to the United States Postal Service Board of Governors.


The Senate must approve the appointment. There is no timetable for how long that might take. If approved, Casey will succeed Tirso del Junco, a Los Angeles-based Republican, surgeon and entrepreneur and serve the remainder of Tirso's term, which expires Dec. 8, 2009.


Casey is a Distinguished Executive in Residence at the Edwin L. Cox School of Business at Southern Methodist University and previously served as president/CEO of the Resolution Trust Corp. From 1986 to 1988, he was the Ann Cox Distinguished Professor of Business Policy at Cox School of Business after serving as postmaster general in 1986. Casey was the chief executive of AMR Corp. from 1974 to 1985, and remained on the board of directors until 1991. He joined AMR Corp., after eight years as the president of Times Mirror Co., Los Angeles.


The president also will have to name a successor to Einar Dhyrkopp, president of Tecumseh International Corp., a firm involved in coal marketing. Dhyrkopp's term expires this year.


The Board consists of nine presidential appointees plus the postmaster general and the deputy postmaster general. The president appoints the nine governors with the advice and consent of the Senate. The appointees, in turn, select a postmaster general, and those 10 select a deputy postmaster general. Each governor is appointed to a nine-year term or to the remainder of an unexpired term.
