Okay, folks, I have sent in the Application for Executive Clemency. I followed Susan Meyer's instructions. She is the director of the Executive Clemency Division in the Governor's Counsel's Office. When I called Carinne Rivers, the director of the Executive Clemency Division at the State Parole Board, she said she wanted to send them back to me because the policy of "no posthumous pardons" is still in effect.
Luckily, I was able to reach Susan Meyer, who instructed Ms. Rivers to keep the application on file until the policy can be changed at a later date.
So now all we need to do is change the policy!
Easier said than done, right?
That is why we need you. Please, call the Governor's office - 609-292-6000 - ask Susan Meyer to change the policy. New Jersey should grant pardons to anyone, whether they are living or dead, if there is evidence of innocence, or reasonable doubt or unfair prosecution or any other legitimate reason for a pardon.
That is how offices like that work. They need feedback from the public showing support for any action they want to take.
Do some research on your own. Tell them why they should Free James Titus!
Encourage others to do the same. Please.
Promote the Free James Titus Movement on Delicious, or StumbleUpon or Digg. Write a letter to the editor. Post flyers in every Quick Chek in the state! Do something.
It's up to you.
