Good Morning,  This information is not releasable under OPRA without the

disclosable, as he was appointed, and the two Zoning Board Members
attached have been re-appointed, and Mr. Book and Mr. Costanzo have been
re-appointed as well, however new applications were not required.  Please
note Redactions have been made pursuant to NJSA 47:1A-1.1- unlisted phone

Dear Jackson Township,
1) I acknowledge your statement that resumes of unsuccessful candidates are not releasable under OPRA without the permission of the unsuccessful candidates.
2) As you point out, Mr. Chisholm was the successful candidate for Jackson Council and, as such, I acknowledge receipt of his resume.
3) At the January 15, 2020 ZBA meeting it was acknowledged that Mr. Borrelli and Mr. Hurley were new Jackson ZBA members. I see that you provided their basic applications but no resumes. Were there no resumes required of these 2 folks?
5) I understand the Mr. Book and Mr. Costanzo were re-appointed to the Jackson ZBA and did not require applications.

Would you please clarify item 3) above?

Yours faithfully,
