Dear South River Borough,
Under OPRA and the common law right of access, please provide copies of all partisan candidate petitions filed for municipal offices, and county committee, in your municipality.
Thanks very much and please don't hesitate to contact me if I can be helpful in clarifying this request.
I hope that you will be able to provide the requested records, as there is a fast approaching deadline for individuals to challenge these petitions. Please provide a response today.
