Local Man Confirmed By U.S. Senate

Washington, D.C. — The United States Senate has confirmed a Martin County native to serve as a Governor of the United States Postal service. Robert M. “Mike” Duncan of Inez has been serving on the board since August of 2018 on an interim holdover basis. Earlier this week, Duncan was confirmed by the Senate to continue serving in the position for a term that expires on December 8, 2025. Duncan was elected Chairman of the Board of Governors last year and continues in that role. U. S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell congratulated Duncan on his confirmation saying, “I’m grateful Mike has chosen to keep lending his talents and experience to the world’s largest postal organization, and I look forward to his continued accomplishments on the Board.” Duncan’s federal government service began in 1989 with an appointment to the President’s Commission on Executive Exchange. Duncan was also assistant director of the White House Office of Public Liaison under President George H.W. Bush.
