Board nomination. President Trump has nominated John McLeod Barger to be a member of the USPS Board of Governors (BOG).
Barger, a California resident, is nominated for the remainder of a seven-year term expiring Dec. 8, 2021. The U.S. Senate must confirm nominees before they join the board.
The governors are the principal officers of the Postal Service. The BOG is similar to a board of directors, conducting long-range planning and setting strategic policies, among other duties.
