Reclaim New York offered the following statement in response to the New York Post and NY1 News’ Article 78 lawsuit against Mayor de Blasio:
“Thanks to NY1 and The Post, Mayor de Blasio’s fantasy about secret ‘agents of the city’ emails may not see too many more tomorrows.
“The Mayor should already know that he doesn’t have a license to avoid Freedom of Information Law. It’s schemes to duck public oversight like this that make our New York Transparency Project so necessary. We’re giving every New Yorker the tools and resources they need to hold politicians who think they’re above the law accountable.
“When government knows they can’t make up fictional stories to escape oversight, New York will get the proactive transparency our state deserves.”
Reclaim New York has ongoing Article 78 lawsuits against the Town of Babylon, Town of Islip, and Town of Oyster Bay.
