Town of Westfield Loses O.P.R.A. Request Appeal Filed by Resident


     The New Jersey Government Records Council ruled in favor of a complainant that was denied access to a public record by Westfield town officials.  
     The original OPRA request was filed in the fall of 2014 on the recommendation of Mayor Andy Skibitsky after he was asked, and refused, in an open public forum, for information regarding the questionable purchase of the emergency mobile command center for the town's police department.  
     Mayor Skibitsky's refusal to provide basic information started the process that has ended today with the decision of the Government Records Council.

*Please note that fees are allowable and allowed.  There is no intention to hurt the taxpayers of Westfield because of the actions of some of their servants.

  1. So you can keep your personal agenda of hate going against the Chief the taxpayers now have to foot the bill for your attorney fees. Good going Greg.

    I hope the taxpayers eventually realize that you're just a disgruntled ex-employee with a personal vendetta against the Chief.

    1. My "personal agenda" or "vendetta" as you choose to label it, is to rid the police department of corruption and hold town officials, including the chief, accountable for their actions.

    2. Dear Anonymous,
      You are misplacing blame. There could be no finding of impropriety if the Town had not acted improperly. Using your warped logic, the rape victim is at fault because she is pretty. You don't want to admit that if the Council abided by its claim of transparency and answered the questions, there would have been no need to appeal. If the mayor had not instructed me to file an OPRA request, there would be no decision against the Town. Face facts, any expenditure of money was caused by the decisions of the Town.

    3. Hey AnonymASS, Wayman will cost the taxpayers a hell of a lot more money when his secretary sues for sexual harassment. Time to cut the cord with this scumbag drunken womanizer that thinks he can get away with his antics because he is chief. WTF, how does a serial narcissist get to the highest position in the police department? Oh wait, I know, it's the Moe, Larry, and Curly show.....starring Dave, Andy, and Jim.

  2. Can you OPRA request how many times Chief Wayman and his secretary disappear for 2hour lunches and where they go?

  3. This culture of corruption, arrogance, and ineptitude will persist in law enforcement until the individual police officers are made financially accountable for the losses sustained by taxpayers and insurance providers for their inappropriate and illegal actions.
