Multi Request Expenditures relating to visits from federal officials
Status
Rejected

Communications

From: Emma North-Best

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the New Mexico Inspection of Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

Records describing, authorizing or mentioning expenses or personnel assignments in response to or accommodation of visits from officials in the federal government between January 1, 2001 and the present.

I am a member of the news media and request classification as such. I have previously written about the government and its activities, with some reaching over 100,000 readers in outlets such as Gizmodo, MuckRock, Motherboard, Property of the People, Unicorn Riot, and The Outline, among others. As such, as I have a reasonable expectation of publication and my editorial and writing skills are well established. In addition, I discuss and comment on the files online and make them available through non-profits such as the library Internet Archive and the journalist non-profit MuckRock, disseminating them to a large audience. While my research is not limited to this, a great deal of it, including this, focuses on the activities and attitudes of the government itself. As such, it is not necessary for me to demonstrate the relevance of this particular subject in advance.

As my primary purpose is to inform about government activities by reporting on it and making the raw data available, I request that fees be waived.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 15 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Emma Best

Hi there

A message was sent to you regarding record request #19-7452:

Dear Ms. Best:

 

I am following up with you regarding your Inspection of Public Records Act (“IPRA”) request submitted on November 4, 2019 (identified as # 19-452. Multiple messages have been sent to you seeking clarification of your request and no response has been received.

 

To this date, you have not advised which reports you are seeking.  It appears that you no longer desire to inspect these records. If that is the case then please send my office a written communication through Next Request # 19-7452 and indicate that you no longer wish to inspect these records and you also wish to have this request closed. If you are no longer interested in reviewing the public records, then we hope you are willing to extend that courtesy.

 

Please respond to my office within two (2) days of this communication. If you do not respond to this communication within that time and if you fail to send the deposit for the records within the next two (2) days then my office will be forced to close out your request. Even though your inactions may force my office to close this request, you are always welcome to resubmit a new request in the future. We hope you understand the predicament your inactions have placed us, we only have a finite amount of time and resources and it would be a disservice to the Citizens of Albuquerque to spend it on a request where the requester has failed to response to our communications and also failed to inspect the records made available.

 

Please let me know if you have any questions. 

 

Sincerely,

 

 

Nyvia Barraza
