NJGOP Calls For Transparency On Alvarez Resignation
Submits Open Public Records Requests

For Immediate Release

Trenton, NJ – One of Governor Murphy’s longtime, top staffers, Al Alvarez abruptly resigned last week. Since then, details are emerging on allegations that he was accused of sexual misconduct.

When questioned about the resignation Governor Murphy refused to comment.

NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt said, “We’ve called for bipartisan hearings into Governor Murphy’s hiring practices, but there is a more immediate question that should be easily answered; why did Alvarez resign? Why won’t Governor Murphy answer that simple question?”

The NJGOP has submitted Open Public Records Requests for all relevant documents surrounding the hiring and resignation of Alvarez.

Steinhardt continued, “If the Governor refuses to answer the press, his constituents or a formal request under the State’s open public records laws, then Senate Democrats like Sweeney and a Coughlin owe it to this State to put partisan politics aside and their money where their mouths are, convene public hearings and subpoena them.”
