Joe Jastrzemski
Niagara County Clerk candidate Joe Jastrzemski urged the state Senate and Assembly to ban the sale of motorists’ personal information by the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles.

Jastrzemski issued a press release calling the practice "unconscionable," and asking body houses of the state Legislature to make passing the bill a priority.

His press release follows in its entirety.
“Yesterday, it came to my attention that a Freedom of Information Request by Monroe County Clerk Cheryl Dinolfo to determine which companies the New York State DMV sold motorists’ personal information to had been delayed because, in the state’s words, the number of records is ‘substantial.’ This is an unconscionable abuse of the public’s trust, on a larger scale than anyone imagined.

 “The state Senate and Assembly have a pair of bills before them, S.5668 and A.2509, that would put an end to this abusive practice by requiring written consent from motorists before their personal information is disclosed. DMV customers should be able to trust that, when they register their motor vehicles with the state, the state is handling that information with respect, not looking to make a quick buck by violating its citizens’ privacy. It is my understanding that these bills are before the Senate Finance and Assembly Transportation committees. I urge both houses to make passing this bill a priority, and I hope Gov. Cuomo will swiftly sign it into law.”

  3. That does not mean it should continue. Maintaining a wrong is not correct .It only indicates a acceptance of corruption. There are still barrels available for the falls plunge. another thief working the county.
