“We’re not supposed to be here…We’re invisible…”; Shocking new audio exposes Jackson officials at CUPON meeting

Audio recently obtained by TLS appears to show Jackson Township planning and zoning board officials acknowledging that their attendance at a secret meeting last week in which the proposed Jackson Trails project and future development were discussed, was wrong.

The audio, recorded at the meeting, features Planning Board member Richard Egan and Zoning Board members Sheldon Hofstein and Joe Sullivan. In it, Hofstein can be heard saying “We’re not supposed to be here… nobody saw us,” a statement to which Mr. Sullivan can be heard agreeing with. Richard Egan is then heard saying “We didn’t sign in. We’re neutral, like, we’re invisible.”

Although not included in the attached audio, sources tell TLS that the three land use officials present at the meeting were active participants, with each speaking with the assembled group.

The new audio suggests that there was a clear and obvious attempt by Egan, Hofstein, and Sullivan to hide their participation in the meeting. Jackson officials have so far not taken any concrete steps towards addressing the land use members’ attendance at the CUPON meeting.

In addition, TLS has learned that more evidence of their involvement at the meeting exists.

With Jackson township under a Federal and State investigation, some are now calling on the Department of Justice to take action.

    • They resigned before their activity would have any effect. Let it go. Now the one who did not resign, though…. they should go after them will the full force of the law.

  1. Can someone please explain what the Jackson Pines development is and how it will effect the residents of Jackson? Keep in mind, It is not fair to lump together developer/opportunistic concerns with legitimate concerns of discrimination against individual homeowners and non commercial groups.

  2. HOPE THAT THE REST IS RELEASED AS RUMOR HAS IT THAT MUCH WAS SAID THAT CAN SINK OTHER ELECTED OFFICIALS ..THIS IS HUGE..REINAS FRIENDS SINGING ON HIM

  3. Let’s be fair, while we want to be treated like other contributing citizens, you cannot deny that neighboring towns are fearful of the overdevelopment, ridiculous traffic and urban milieu we’ve seen in Lakewood!

  4. Sources I spoke to told me the other close to 2 hours of audio is really bad…supposedly Reina knew about this meeting before and knew they were going…
