TRENTON, N.J. – Assemblywoman Serena DiMaso, who called for soon-to-be former MVC Executive Director Sue Fulton to resign and told her to get her act together during an Assembly Budget hearing on Monday, was surprised to hear that Fulton was being hired by President Joe Biden to become an assistant secretary at the U.S. Defense Department.
“Fulton was a disaster managing a state motor vehicle commission. There is no way she can handle the responsibility of managing affairs in the Department of Defense,” said DiMaso (R-Monmouth). “America really is the land of opportunity. It doesn’t matter how much a person fails.”
DiMaso and other lawmakers had sharp criticism for Fulton Monday saying the MVC’s appointment system was worst in the state along with the state Labor Department’s unemployment system during the pandemic.
“It seems to be excuse after excuse, you need to get your act together,” said DiMaso, after mentioning there were no appointments to get a Real ID driver’s license when she went online during the hearing. “My staff gets calls from people who can’t get their unemployment money with a license to provide who they are. It’s unacceptable and frustrating.”
