Post time at last: interview with Kevin Yoder
BY DAVID MALONEY
Recent postal reforms will go a long way toward putting the U.S. Postal Service back on a sound financial footing, says Kevin Yoder, head of the postal advocacy group Keep US Posted. But there’s more to be done to keep the Postal Service healthy.
Kevin Yoder is a former congressman who now serves as executive director of Keep US Posted, a broad-based advocacy group that believes that a reliable, affordable U.S. Postal Service (USPS) is essential to our way of life and should be protected.
From 2011 to 2019, Yoder served his Kansas district in the House of Representatives and was the youngest Republican appointed to the House Appropriations Committee. He also chaired the Homeland Security and Legislative Branch subcommittees and served on various other committees, including the House Steering Committee. He was deputy whip for the House GOP and vice chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee.
Yoder has an undergraduate degree in political science and English as well as a J.D. from the University of Kansas. He recently was a guest on DC Velocity's Logistics Matters podcast, where he spoke with Group Editorial Director David Maloney about postal reform.
