HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH)– Governor Malloy has named a new head of the state’s beleaguered DMV.
Michael Bzdyra spent years at the Connecticut Resource Recovery Agency and has been a deputy DMV Commissioner for the past five years.
The Governor also named a new deputy commissioner from outside government service.The new management team promises to modernize the system.
“I bring an institutional knowledge of the agency and this will be coupled with the private sector background of Ms. Judeen Wrinn, the new deputy commissioner. We promise to create a new approach to the DMV, to solve DMV’s problems and be more customer-centric,” said Bzdyra.
The DMV replaced its computer system last summer, and wait times at the offices have soared ever since.
The previous commissioner, former State Senator Andres Ayala, stepped down in January.
