Damage Control as DMV Head Resigns

The administration of Gov. Dannel P. Malloy scrambled today to frame the resignation of Andres Ayala Jr., the Democratic governor’s first Hispanic department head, as anything other than an attempt to solely blame him for a troubled tenure as commissioner of motor vehicles.

Ayala, a former state senator from Bridgeport who quit the legislature to join the administration a year ago, resigned Tuesday night, and his departure was confirmed today after it was first reported by The Hartford Courant.

At an event at Bradley International Airport to announce the resumption of direct flights to Los Angeles, the governor said today that he did not seek Ayala’s resignation.

“He volunteered it. I’ve had a great working relationship with the commissioner,” Malloy said. “It’s been a tough year for him.  I think he’s done a good job, as good as he could do, and I think it was an opportune time for him to leave at this point.”
