MDP Statement Regarding Ongoing RMV Oversight Hearing

The Chair of the Massachusetts Democratic Party, Gus Bickford, released the following statement regarding the ongoing RMV oversight hearing:

“While his top deputies provided embarrassing testimony detailing management failure after management failure, Charlie Baker fled the state to avoid any questions about his inability to manage the Registry of Motor Vehicles.  As Democrats in the legislature uncovered today, nobody was minding the store at the RMV and the safety of everyone on the state’s roads has been jeopardized as a result.  Today’s damning testimony makes clear that Charlie Baker and Karyn Polito prioritized saving a few dollars over ensuring critical life-safety functions were performed at the RMV.”
