It was announced today that President Joe Biden will nominate, Arab American, Anton George Hajjar, to the United States Post Office (USPS) Board of Governors. Hajjar is a labor and employment attorney and was formerly general counsel of the American Postal Workers Union.
Biden is expected to fill three of the remaining seats on the U.S. Postal Service’s board of governors, positions that have oversight over the postmaster general and the United States Postal Service. In addition to Hajjar, Biden intends to appoint Ron Stroman and Amber McReynolds to the three open seats.
After receiving his J.D. at Tulane University Law School, where he was a member of the Board of Editors of the law review, he became a law clerk for Judge John Minor Wisdom at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. He was later an attorney for the National Labor Relations Board in the Appellate Court Branch and its Contempt Litigation Section. He is admitted to practice in the District of Columbia and Maryland, and before the United States Supreme Court and other federal courts.
Hajjar is a third-generation Syrian American who grew up in Brooklyn, N.Y. and currently resides in the Washington DC area.
