Republican State Chairman Doug Steinhardt is continuing his call for a legislative investigation into the circumstances that led to Albert Alvarez’s departure from the Murphy administration.
“We’ve called for bipartisan hearings into Governor Murphy’s hiring practices, but there is a more immediate question that should be easily answered; why did Alvarez resign? Why won’t Governor Murphy answer that simple question?” Steinhardt asked.
The New Jersey Republican State Committee has filed a request for documents on Alvarez’s hiring and resignation under the state’s Open Public Record Act.
The NJGOP has submitted Open Public Records Requests for all relevant documents surrounding the hiring and resignation of Alvarez.
“If the Governor refuses to answer the press, his constituents or a formal request under the State’s open public records laws, then Senate Democrats like Sweeney and a Coughlin owe it to this State to put partisan politics aside and their money where their mouths are, convene public hearings and subpoena them,” Steinhardt said.
