Trump National Golf Club correspondence

Michael Tracey filed this request with the California Coastal Commission of California.


From: Michael Tracey

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the California Public Records Act (California Government Code §§ 6250), I hereby request the following records:

All correspondence -- including emails, personnel records, and meeting minutes -- from 2005 to present, pertaining to the Commission's handling of the appeal by Donald Trump to allow a flagpole to be erected at Trump National Golf Club in Ranchos Palos Verdes, California.

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.

Thanks. I just tried uploading all documents - there are more than 200. But now I don't see them all on the web page and it appears that some may not have uploaded. Rather than spend time trying to figure out which ones uploaded and not and redo it, I will just mail you a CD with all the documents. There will be no charge. I will mail it to the following address unless you tell me otherwise:

I’ll send the CD out to you today or tomorrow.
