USPS Governor Ellen Williams reappointed
President George W. Bush has appointed US Postal Service Board of Governors member Ellen Williams for a second term ending on December 8, 2014.
The president first appointed Williams to the board in 2006 to serve the remainder of an unexpired term. At that time, she replaced John Gardner, who had held a recess appointment following the death of former governor Legree Daniels in November of 2005.
Governor Williams currently serves as vice chair of the board's Compensation and Management Resources Committee and is a member of the Government Relations and Regulatory Committee.
She previously served as vice chairman of the Kentucky Public Service Commission and was chairman of the Republican Party of Kentucky.
She currently runs her own business, Ellen C. Williams LLC, a government affairs and lobbying firm. A graduate of the University of Kentucky, she lives in Anderson County, KY.
The USPS Board of Governors consists of nine governors who are appointed by the president and the consent of the Senate. No more than five of the nine governors can be members of the same party.
