From: Baltimore Mayor's Office

Ms. Russell:

In your April 9, 2018 e-mail to the Mayor’s Office, below, you requested records related to “all estimates and/or actual costs for bussing 3,000 students from Baltimore, MD to Washington, DC on March 24, 2018 for ‘The March for Our Lives’ event.” The Maryland Public Information Act (“PIA”), Maryland Code, General Provisions (“GP”), Sections 4-101 et seq. governs your request.

A request for public information under the PIA must be submitted to an agency’s custodian of public records. GP § 4-202(a). Each governmental entity, including each Baltimore City agency, is the custodian of its own records. See Baltimore City Code, Art. 1 § 10-1. This response is on behalf of the Mayor’s Office. The responsive records in the custody of the Mayor’s Office are attached.

Nothing in this response is intended to indicate that records sought from City agencies exist or to waive any privileges held by the Mayor and City Council. You may contest this response by filing a complaint in Circuit Court pursuant to GP section 4-362.

Sincerely,

Hanna Marie C. Sheehan
