DMV Director to Retire

Posted March 10, 2008

— John Robinson, director of the DMV's License and Theft Bureau, has announced plans to step down June 14.

Robinson, 59, runs the division which investigates vehicle thefts and fraud as well as emissions inspections. He has been employed by the state for 21 years.

Robinson leaves just two weeks after two members of his 200-person staff were placed on leave as part of an investigation into the hiring of a friend of Robinson's. DMV Commissioner Bill Gore said the investigation and the timing of Robinson's retirement are unrelated.

    Only way to get rid of them is for them to resign or retire. No one EVER gets fired.

    "Unrelated"- Yeah, right. He's bailing out before he loses his pension. He is the epitome of what's wrong at DMV!!!!!!
