Dear Ms. Cilento,

Thank you for your time & assistance. In regards to the new email address you sent, please be advised that email addresses sent via OPRA Machine usually end up censored. For instance, all that I received is this: " As noted in my previous email, please send any future emails and OPRA requests to [email address]."

Could you please re-send the email address, perhaps by replacing the "@" and "." symbols with the words AT and DOT

I will let you know if it comes through that way.

Thank you,

Resident

Cilento, Mary Ann, Ocean County Sheriff's Department

The Ocean County OPRA email is [email address]

I apologize for any confusion.

Dear Ms. Cilento,

Thanks for trying, but that still didn't come through. All that arrived was this: "The Ocean County OPRA email is [email address]"

On my end, I did look for a direct OPRA contact for the Department of Corrections through Google, but I was unable to find one.

My only other suggestion, which might work, is to send the email address via a PDF attachment.

Hopefully this worked for you.

Dear Ms. Cilento,

Thank you for your assistance. I have asked OPRA Machine to add you as a direct contact for the Ocean County Board of Commissioners, so hopefully you will be added within the next week or so, and then OPRA Machine requests can be sent directly to you.

Yours sincerely,

Resident

Cilento, Mary Ann, Ocean County Sheriff's Department

Requests should not be sent to my email address, in case I am out of the office. OPRA requests should be sent to [email address].

Thank you

Dear Ms. Cilento,

I'm not sure what address you just sent (since OPRA Machine censors them), but I meant I was adding the email address you had provided in your heading the last time we spoke, the one that starts with OPRA (at symbol) and ends with co ocean nj us (dots removed)

Hopefully that is correct!

Yours sincerely,

Resident

Cilento, Mary Ann, Ocean County Sheriff's Department

That's correct. Thank you.
