MuckRock News,

Our Anchorage Commissioner's Office received the attached letter on Feb 21, 2018, which references an Oct 19, 2017 request the department has no record of receiving. The quality of the copy of that previous request is, as you can see, poor to illegible.

I am the AK Dept. Health and Social Services contact for records requests. If you wish to re-file the October request in full, please direct to my attention - contact information below.

Thank you.
