Dear Hamilton Township (Mercer),
This is a request for public records made under OPRA and the common law right of access. I am not required to fill out an official form. Please acknowledge receipt of this message.
Email Records between Kelly Yaede and Pamela Thoresen from 2016-Present. Any and all emails between Kelly Yaede and Pamela Thoresen while Mayor Kelly Yaede was in office. I am also requesting any email records between Vincent Capodanno and Mayor Kelly Yaede while she was in office from 2018-Present. In addition, I am requesting any emails between Mayor Kelly Yaede and Martin Flynn while both were working for the Township of Hamilton between 2018-Present.
Good afternoon Mr. Dempsey,
Pursuant to OPRA request 20-0211 pertaining to emails from Kelly Yaede, please be advised, clarification is needed. OPRA is not a research tool, and it cannot be used “to force government officials to identify and siphon useful information.” See id. at 546. Rather, OPRA simply operates “to make identifiable government records “readily accessible for inspection, copying, or examination.” Ibid. (citing N.J.S.A. 47:1A-1). That being said, please see below which items need to be defined:
• email records between Kelly Yaede and Pamela Thoresen from 2016 - present
• emails between Kelly Yaede and Pamela Thoresen while Mayor Kelly Yaede was in office
• any email records between Vincent Capodanno and Mayor Kelly Yaede from 2018 - present
• emails between Mayor Kelly Yaede and Martin Flynn between 2018 - Present
To ensure you receive the most accurate responsive records to your request, please provide the specific email addresses you are looking for, along with any key words, if any.
I look forward to your response.
Municipal Clerk’s Office
