‘Failing to Plan is Planning to Fail’

Senator Michael Doherty released the following statement in response to the blatant failures of the Murphy administration as it neglected to adequately prepare for the reopening of the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) that had been shut down since March due the COVID-19 lockdown:

“After a four-month lockdown, the MVC that New Jerseyans returned to was an utter nightmare. Long lines wrapped around the agencies, negatively impacting those waiting in the heat and humidity as well as the communities surrounding the centers. Many residents were turned away without any help or guidance. The failure to properly plan for this reopening is an absolute disgrace.

“With residents facing another day of long lines in the summer sun, I urge Governor Murphy to stop blaming residents for his administration’s failures and to take full responsibility for this mess.

“All New Jerseyans want to do is abide by the rules of the road and get their paperwork up to date. After four months of being forced to stay home, opening state agencies efficiently and effectively is the least we can do.”
