On October 15, 2014, the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA), along with affiliate California Organization of Licensing Registration Examiners (COLRE), hosted an informational luncheon licensing registration examiners at the Department of Motor Vehicles annual regional III meeting in Sacramento.
COLRE President Francine Toth, Secretary Megan Corona and CSLEA Senior Counsel Ryan Navarre spoke to nearly 60 licensing registration examiners about their workplace issues and concerns, their contract and their employee rights.
"I'm always proud to be in a room full of licensing registration examiners," said Toth. "We are a group of people who provide such a vital public safety service and we put ourselves in harm's way, in doing so. Testing drivers who are new, inexperienced, disabled, seniors or those who speak little or no English puts us in a hazardous position. I have a lot of respect for LREs and want to be sure they are properly taken care of."
This was one in a series of DMV regional meetings that are held annually and was an opportunity to introduce new COLRE Board Secretary Megan Corona. Corona is a COLRE-CSLEA site rep at a DMV office in Riverside and now serves and a regional site rep for all site reps in Region VII.
"I'm excited to serve our members and will assist in any way I can," said Corona. "I want our site reps to know that they can contact me."
