The recent news that the postmaster
general is a major Trump donor
and has been undermining the US
Postal Service in advance of a presidential
election has one Bronx elected
offi cial furious.
Councilman Fernando Cabrera
chairs the City Council’s Committee
on Governmental Operations, which
oversees the New York City Board of
Elections. His offi ce received numerous
complaints from people who never
received their June 23 primary election
mail-in ballots or got them late. He
subsequently learned from the Board
of Elections that the ballots’ post mark
was extremely tardy, implicating
On Friday, he submitted a resolution
calling on the state legislature
and Governor Andrew Cuomo to pass
legislation that would require mail in
ballots for November’s election to be
sent out an additional 30 days in advance
of the 42- day period.
“The June primary was just a ‘dry
run’ for the disaster that is clearly being
devised for the November presidential
election,” Cabrera said. “Now
we know why so many New Yorkers either
did not receive ballots or received
them too late for them to be counted.
Trump’s postmaster general, who has
a background in logistics and has
slashed the US Postal Service budget,
is part of the machinery that will dismantle
democracy in the United States,
and I’m calling for his removal.”
Cabrera told the Bronx Times that
the way the postal service is being
run is ludicrous. Cutting the sorting
machines off early and not allowing
the employees to work overtime is
absurd, he said.
He noted that the congressional
race involving Carolyn Maloney and
her challenger Suraj Patel is still missing

Cabrera stressed the BOE did its
job and he put the blame entirely at the
feet of the USPS.
“The post offi ce utterly failed,” he
said. “The reality is the BOE did everything
they were supposed to.”
With the need to social distance because
of COVID-19 and the election in
November, the councilman urged the
legislature to take action on his resolution
within the month,
Cabrera said he would love to see
online voting, but that’s a conversation
for another day.
“The fault lies at the top, and the top
is the executive branch of the United
States government,” Cabrera said.
“The evidence is clear that Trump is
using the USPS to manipulate the upcoming
election by engineering its
demise. This must be stopped at all
levels. We have to safeguard our local
elections and our voters from
