Get Konnected! recently honored Celia Blue for her work as assistant Secretary of the Massachusetts Department of Transportation.
Prior to becoming Assistant Secretary, Celia served as deputy Registrar for the Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV). As one of the Registrar’s senior advisors, Celia assisted in strategic planning, policy-making decisions and implementation of various Registry initiatives.

Her management responsibilities included managing approximately 500 employees responsible for the issuance of licensing motor vehicles operators; registering and titling vehicles; the collection of citation and license reinstatement fees and clearances; and the processing of motor vehicle crash data that is important for assessing the safety of Commonwealth’s roadways.
