Supported by newspaper editorials concurring with his opinion that Gov. Jon Corzine should release emails he exchanged with former union leader Carla Katz despite an appellate court ruling Monday that Corzine isn’t legally obligated to do so, GOP Chairman Tom Wilson fired off a letter to the governor today.
In the four-paragraph communication, Wilson renewed the same offer he made to Corzine after Superior Court Judge Paul Innes’ issued his initial ruling in May of last year: release the e-mails to the public under the provisions of the Open Public Records Act (OPRA).
Do that, the GOP chairman said today, and “I will agree to forego an appeal to the Supreme Court.
“Under the court rules, I have 20 days to petition the court to hear the appeal, a process that involves considerable preparation.” Wilson added. “As such, I will afford you 10 days to accept my offer. If you have not released the communications by noon on Thursday, January 22, 2009, I will proceed with my appeal to the Supreme Court.”
