Anne S. Ferro, the longtime administrator of the state Motor Vehicle Administration who is credited with reforming the agency and reducing wait times, said yesterday that she is leaving her job to work in private industry. It is the second time this year that the state announced that Ferro would be leaving the MVA. When the Ehrlich administration took office in January, Ferro was among dozens of state workers who received letters of dismissal. But lawmakers protested, and Ferro kept her job. This time, she said she is leaving of her own accord.

Anne S. Ferro woke up yesterday thinking she had been fired as head of the state Motor Vehicle Administration. By lunch, she thought a flurry of calls from legislators had saved her job - yet her ultimate status remained up in the air last night, offering a rare glimpse into the confusion and glitches that can haunt a gubernatorial transition. Despite criticism from many lawmakers, sources close to Gov.-elect Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. say he has offered Ferro's MVA position to Robb Banks, an auto dealership general manager and Republican fund-raiser.
