CJ Griffin Quoted in Politico on Court Decisions Allowing Public Bidders in New Jersey to use P.O. Boxes
CJ Griffin, Director of the Justice Gary S. Stein Public Interest Center at Pashman Stein Walder Hayden, was quoted in a Politico article, “Court decisions allowing public bidders in N.J. to use PO boxes rather than home addresses alarm advocates.” The article discusses a court decision issued in November 2022 that will give companies more leeway as to which addresses they list when bidding for local government public contracts in New Jersey.
“Addresses are historically available for everybody. Our property records are available, and they’re available for a reason: So we can see who’s involved in transactions,” Griffin said in an interview. “ New Jersey has too long of a history of corruption to start chipping away, even in minor ways, on ways we can check if everything’s on the up-and-up.”
