DMV in Gilroy a prime example of government at its absolute worst

Dear Editor,

Last week, I went to the Department of Motor Vehicles in Gilroy to make an application for a picture California ID card.

There were 87 people in the facility. Of that number, there were five whites (including me) an African American couple with the father holding a baby, 11 women and the balance of 68 were Hispanic males in a long line against the wall.

One man, near the end of that line, told me he’d had to come back with a letter from his employee that he hadn’t had with him last week. He also told me that he’d waited for two hours before he was able to discuss his problem with a DMV employee, all of whom spoke Spanish.

This is a very poor situation. The solution is to streamline the procedure and immediately hire more employees. Oh yes, I was told that one person was on vacation and one was off sick.

This is a bad state program.

Jim Wright, Gilroy
