UNION COUNTY – Union County Watchdog Association President Tina Renna is suing the county to obtain a copy of the report investigating allegations that county employees improperly used government-owned portable generators following Hurricane Sandy, according to a Star-Ledger report.
Shortly before leaving office, Union County Prosecutor Theodore Romankow announced that his office turned up no evidence of crimes committed and would send the findings to county officials for potential administrative action.
Renna was denied access to the report when she filed an Open Public Records Act request, according to the report.
The so-called “generatorgate” issue gained attention last year when 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.
