Hi Cherry,

A copy of documents responsive to the request.

From: E A

I am appealing my request. I believe that my request is not unduly burdensome as there is great public interest in this information.

There is significant public interest in the information as this request pertains to the current President of the United States. As the President continues to hold rallies like the one hold in Bloomington, IL last year, the information contained here provides insight into how the campaign has worked with local authorities. These rallies, both in Illinois and across the country, will continue to involve local resources and the public deserves to know how the Executive branch is orchestrating and communicating with local municipalities that hold these events. As there were only two rallies in Illinois for the President during the campaign, the public has the right to know how their local police operate when a rally is held in their town.

From: Bloomington Police Department
