Council Member/Mayor Steve Young communications re. Greene, Shakoor-Grantham, Stewart

Nathalie Christian filed this request with the Office Of The City Manager of Benicia, CA.


From: Nathalie Christian

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the California Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

Any emails, written communications, texts, chats, or instant messages, on any government accounts/devices and personal accounts or devices made by the Benicia City Council Member/Mayor Steve Young pertaining to Brandon Greene, Nimat Shakoor-Grantham, and Andre Stewart and made between November 1, 2020 and December 10, 2021.

Please include all group messages and all messages in threads, in any form and on any app (including, but not limited to, SMS, MMS, text, iMessage, Teams, Discord, WeChat, Facebook, Facebook Messenger, Twitter, Instagram, Hangouts, Meet, Signal, Slack, Skype, Viber, Snapchat, Line), on any government accounts/devices or on personal accounts or devices. Please also include any deleted message text, images, attachments, dates, and times in trash or deleted folders or similar (see Good Government Guideā€”if the records have not been permanently deleted as of the time you receive this request, you must retrieve them and provide them).

In the event that some portions of the requested records are properly exempt from disclosure, please disclose any reasonably segregable non-exempt portions of the requested records. If it is the City's position that a document contains non-exempt segments, but that those non-exempt segments are so dispersed throughout the document as to make segregation impossible, please state what portion of the document is non-exempt, and how the material is dispersed throughout the document. If a request is denied in whole, state specifically that it is not reasonable to segregate portions of the record for release.

Please provide only those copies of records available without any fees. If you determine certain records would require fees, please instead provide the required notice of which of those records are available and non-exempt for inspection in-person if I so choose.

I am requesting these documents on behalf of myself and no specific group, as this is a matter of public interest.

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 10 calendar days, as the statute requires.
