Pursuant to the Illinois Freedom of Information Act., I hereby request the following records:

I am requesting any and all processing notes related to any FOIA requests your office might have received for the Amazon HQ2.

At minimum, provide:

All emails and texts sent by, received by or copied on the following individuals’ accounts Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Robert Rivkin, Adam Collins, Aarti Kotak, Danielle DuMerer, Farzin Parang, David Reifman and Andrea Zopp – between Sep. 7, 2015 and the present that contain any form of the following terms: “FOIA”, “Bezos”, “HQ2”, “Jamie” , "litigation", "lawsuit" and “Gorelick." I am requesting not only the emails and texts contained on government or publicly funded accounts but also any private or personally funded line or device in which such public business was discussed. This request also includes lines or devices assigned to or owned by other city staff employees, if used by any of the individuals mentioned above.

Please also search the emails and accounts of the Public Information Officers who received and processed FOIAs with the same keywords.
