NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey’s biggest city is giving the public a window into its bid to win Amazon’s second headquarters.
Newark provided a 200-page, redacted version of its pitch to the online retail giant after earlier denying requests citing a competitive interest in keeping the proposal private.
But CJ Griffin, an Open Public Records Act attorney, says a client sued and the city responded by releasing the pitch, except for six redacted pages.
The document shows Newark titled the pitch “Yes, Newark.” It also highlights some already-public aspects, including up to $5 billion in possible state tax credits and $2 billion in city tax breaks.
