“It’s sad that it took nearly three years, scathing reports of continued mismanagement at our veterans homes, and the loss of federal funds for Governor Murphy to finally realize he can’t avoid some measure of accountability for his pandemic failures.
“We deserve full transparency on how the firms were hired to conduct the review, what they will review or ignore, and the information used to make any determinations.
“This shouldn’t preclude an independent legislative investigation that should have access to all of the documents, statements, and testimony that will be considered by the firms hired by the governor, some of which has been denied previously to the public, legislators, and the press when requested via OPRA.”
