Communications

From: Jonathan Cohn

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Massachusetts Public Records Law, M.G.L. c.66, ยง10, I hereby request the following records:

Any communication, electronic or written, sent or received by the following individuals between July 25, 2015 and July 27, 2015:
Laura Oggeri
Bonnie McGilpin
Eoin Cannon

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as we believe this request is in the public interest, as suggested but not stipulated by the recommendations of the Massachusetts Supervisor of Public Records. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

I expect the request to be filled in an accessible format, including for screen readers, which provide text-to-speech for persons unable to read print. Files that are not accessible to screen readers include, for example, .pdf image files as well as physical documents.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, 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.

Sincerely,

Jonathan Cohn

Hi Jonathan,

Works for me. That would take us down to 371 emails, $326.00. For what it's worth, I took a very quick look at this group and it seems like Bonnie and Laura are on many of the same emails anyway, so odds are you would end up with a lot of duplicates.

Thanks,
Caroline

Please find enclosed a check for $326.00 to satisfy the fee associated with the attached public records request.

Thank you.

Hi Jonathan,

Attached is a link to the emails from Laura Oggeri and Eoin Cannon. Of these, there are several that are partially redacted due to the fact that they discuss an anti-domestic violence initiative that is still under consideration. We are withholding 21 emails under the attorney-client exemption. These consist of emails with counsel concerning compliance with the public records law and emails seeking legal guidance related to ending the Olympics bid. There are also several that pose questions to counsel about pending litigation involving the City that was unrelated to the Olympics.

We are also withholding 18 emails per the deliberative process exemption One of these emails proposes a new measure related to Boston's Living Wage policy. The remaining seventeen (17) discuss the same anti-domestic violence initiative that was partially redacted from the emails I mention above. The terms of this potential policy include several proposals to increase protection and temporary housing options for battered women and children. Because this policy has not been finalized and because the emails discuss potential locations for these housing option - all of which carry an increased level of sensitivity due to concerns assuring the safety of these women and children - we are withholding these emails. Once this policy has been finalized, many of these emails may be released.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Also, if you have any issues downloading the documents, please contact George Bahnan directly - he is copied on this email.

Happy Holidays,
Caroline

From: Mayor's Office
