BOSTON (AP) — The former interim commissioner of the state Department of Children and Families has rejoined the state Registry of Motor Vehicles as registrar.

Erin Deveney was named to the post Tuesday by state Transportation Department Secretary Stephanie Pollack. Her one-year appointment is effective next Monday.

Deveney succeeds Celia Blue, who is transferring to a new role as Transportation Department senior adviser.

Deveney was chief of staff at the Registry for five years, and previously served as deputy registrar and general counsel.

Pollack says Deveney has a “deep understanding of the RMV’s systems and employees” that will allow her “to quickly focus on how the Registry can become more convenient and customer friendly.”
