UNION COUNTY – The Union County Prosecutor’s Office concluded its investigation of county employees who took generators home for personal use during the power outages that resulted from Hurricane Sandy and found no criminal wrongdoing, according to a report from Union News Daily.
The identities of those under investigation were not released and the matter has been referred to Union County Manager Al Faella for “administrative action,” according to the report.
The so-called “generatorgate” issue gained attention last year when vocal county government critic Tina Renna wrote on TheCountyWatchers.com that she had a list of 16 names of county employees who took generators home that she was prepared to give to state investigators, but she won a court battle to avoid being forced to turn the information over after being subpoenaed by county investigators.
