PMG Jack Potter, who announced his retirement date, wrote a letter to employees to accompany his public decision. You can find the whole text here, but there are a few noteworthy excerpts.
He writes not about himself -- but about postal employees.
"The progress we made together, despite enormous obstacles, has been simply amazing. Service, customer satisfaction, efficiency, cost management and our reputation for trust have never been stronger," he said. "We’ve come through some trying times and I’ve always known — whatever the situation — that we’d stand together, work through it and emerge more focused than ever. And we have."
He thanks fellow employees.
"The most rewarding part has been the people — the thousands of people I’ve had the chance to meet and work with, inside and outside the Postal Service. I have always been proud to be a member of the postal family." he said.
"My pride, based on your commitment to our customers and to our nation, has only grown in the years I’ve served as Postmaster General. That will not change — no matter where the future takes me — and I will remain a strong advocate for the Postal Service."
