Dear Old Bridge Township,

This is a request for public records made under OPRA and the common law right of access. Please acknowledge receipt of this message.
Records requested:

The Old Bridge Municipal Building(s) are operated by the Old Bridge Township and funded with taxpayer monies; therefore the lobbies within each Old Bridge Municipal Building is a PUBLIC area. There are signs posted in this public area which indicate that the taking of photographs and/or video from this public area is prohibited due to security issues and etc. Photography and videography from public areas within taxpayer funded government facilities is a Constitutionally protected activity under the First Amendment/Freedom of Press, and this policy is in violation of Constitutional Rights.

I therefore request under OPRA:
1) A digital image of the sign in question as described above.
2) Any and all information, documentation, legal findings, emails, policies, procedures, laws, and/or other material justifying this policy;
3) Any and all records regarding instances in which this policy has been enforced, including the outcomes of such alleged violations;
4) A statement from the Old Bridge Township Police Department and the governing body of Old Bridge Township which acknowledges the Right to take photographs and/or video within any and all publically accessible areas of all Old Bridge Municipal Building(s).

Yours faithfully,

Cynthia Moore
