With six state Motor Vehicle Commission offices now closed after some employees tested positive for COVID, Assembly Minority Leader Jon Bramnick is continuing to hammer the Murphy administration for their inability to solve the problems of long lines and delays throughout the state.
“If Goldman Sachs couldn’t answer the phone, I think they’d figure it out,” Bramnick said in a shot at Gov. Phil Murphy, a top Goldman Sachs executive before launching his political career.
Bramnick, a potential gubernatorial candidate next year, has been a frequent critic of delays for being seeking to renew drivers licenses and vehicle registrations.
The agency did not announce additional hours at other locations to pick up the backlog for the closed offices, including one in Springfield, which is in Bramnick’s legislative district.
“They never extend anything, or do anything to seriously improve the conditions,” Bramnick said. “They’ve only worsened the conditions.”
The Assembly Republican leader wants the legislature to hold hearings on service conditions at the Motor Vehicle agencies.
