    An ego the size of the Titanic. Wish him the best though.

  • Disgusted

    You’ve got to be kidding. This guy has spent more time hitting on women and drinking than he ever has managing. He has a temper like a 2 year old and now he’s in charge of sales? Proof positive that the USPS is on the road to oblivion. This is nothing more than a consolation prize for him not getting Southwest Area AVP. Someone better watch his temporary quarters and bar bill expenses, you can bet he will milk every dime possible.

  • EARNEST

    CONGRATS and good luck Cliff. You did excellent work as Houston District Manager.

    It really would be mind blowing if the PMG and his cronies actually promoted a honest individual that cared about the Postal Service rather than themselves. Cliff doesn’t have much integrity and he is a womanizer and a drunk but hey maybe he has been redeemed or seen the light.

    Shoot, who would have toghuht that it was that easy?
