Monmouth County resident Raymond P. Martinez was confirmed yesterday by the New Jersey State Senate to join the cabinet of Governor Chris Christie as the Chair and Chief Administrator of the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC). Martinez is the 22nd individual to lead the motor vehicle organization in its more than 100-year history.
Nominated by Governor Christie on February 1, 2010, Martinez will manage a state agency that generates more than $1 billion annually and is charged with the licensing of nearly six million drivers and the titling, registration and inspection of more than 4.9 million vehicles. The agency operates 71 facilities statewide and maintains over 25 million customer contacts each year. He will also serve as the Chairman of the MVC Board, a policy-making body comprised of government and public members.
