New Postal Service boss for D.C. region named
Timothy C. Haney, former manager of a U.S. Postal Service facility in the District where two workers died during the 2001 anthrax attacks, will become head of mail operations for the national capital region.
Postmaster General John E. Potter announced Haney's promotion in a staff memo Monday morning (see below). As The Eye reported last week, the move upsets workers who remember that Haney assured them of their safety just days before two workers died of anthrax exposure.
The Postal Service would not comment on those concerns on Monday.
Haney starts the job July 6 and will move from the Postal Service's northeast region, where he managed operations across most of New York, New Jersey and New England.
He started his postal career 33 years ago in Maryland and previously managed mail-distribution centers in Baltimore, Northern Virginia and the District.
The Capital Metro Area, as defined by the Postal Service, includes the District, Maryland, Northern and Eastern Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina. Letter carriers deliver more than 9.9 billion pieces of mail annually to more than 10.7 million addresses across the Capital Metro Area.
In his memo, Potter named Jordan M. Small to succeed Haney in the northeast, David E. Williams to oversee the mail agency's network operations and Kelly M. Sigmon to manage engineering.
