Doherty said to have failed the background check for the job
Brenda “Sue” Fulton of Asbury Park is Governor Murphy’s current choice to become Chief Administrator of the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission, according to a source who told MMM that the West Point graduate has consented to four way background check.
Fulton’s 2016 running mate for Monmouth County Freeholder, Belmar Mayor Matt Doherty, said he “respectfully declined” the Governor’s offer to lead MVC at a Borough Council meeting on Monday night.
Multiple sources told MMM that Doherty “respectfully declined” the position after the offer was withdrawn due to concerns raised in his own background check.
Fulton declined to comment about her pending appointment when reached on the phone. She is currently employed as the Executive Director of Women in the Service Change Initiative (WiSCI), a start-up non-profit advocating for women in the U.S. military, according to her LinkedIn profile.
