Mayor Fulop: Release the Tape Now.

This petition had 386 supporters

According to an article today in, several senior members of Mayor Steven Fulop's administration are alleged to have engaged in a scheme to rig a bid by the company "Good Energy" to perform "energy aggregation consulting" to Jersey City.

Under oath, two city employees have testified that administration members Anthony Cruz, Sean "Sully" Thomas, and Muhammad Akil took part in the scheme to circumvent the proper bidding process. According to the city employees, an undisclosed tape recording captures Akil and Thomas discussing the scheme to steer business to Good Energy. A lawsuit has now been brought under the Open Public Records Act seeking disclosure of the recording, as the city has refused to release it.

In order to ensure that the public is fully informed going into the upcoming mayoral election, it is essential that the Fulop administration immediately release the recording along with any and all other materials, including, but not limited to, emails, memoranda and reports that relate to the scheme. Accordingly, Civic JC calls upon the administration to release these vital materials without further delay.
