On August 28th, Rep. Scott Stone sent a letter to the DMV commissioner to get answers on why there is a secret driver’s license office set-up only for special people. This is while taxpayers are taking time off of work to stand in line for 5+ hours.
In this letter, I asked DMV Commissioner Jessup to provide an explanation as to why this secret driver’s license office is in operation. North Carolina taxpayers deserve to know who had access to it, why those individuals were selected, and how they were notified. The significant frustration already felt from all those waiting in long lines at their local DMV facilities will only be compounded as they learn of the secret, invitation-only office.
In the letter, Rep. Stone said, “While North Carolinians across the state are spending hours waiting for service at other facilities, it appears that special invitations were sent to senior state employees for speedy, 20-minute appointments. Having a separate set of rules and privileges for a special few state employees is an affront to the taxpayers who pay their salaries.”
