CJ Griffin Quoted in New Jersey Monitor Regarding Irvington’s Efforts to Limit Access to Public Records
CJ Griffin, Partner and Director of the Justice Gary S. Stein Public Interest Center at Pashman Stein Walder Hayden, was quoted in a New Jersey Monitor article, “Irvington Takes Another Stab at Limiting Access to Public Records.” The article discusses how the Township of Irvington, in Essex County, is trying to stop another transparency advocate from filing records requests.
“Some public agencies think that public records belong to them, and they get aggressive against requestors who dare ask to see them. OPRA permits anyone to gain access to records, not just citizens. This clerk should know that,” Griffin said.
