To Whom It May Concern:
I am writing to thank you for your many FOIA requests to CCC which I am now dissecting and enjoying, especially the resumes. I am a current employee/adult educator and they are making many surprise changes to our program, so your requests have enabled me to put into context even more this transition to "career pathways" they are taking.
My question is what is your interest in the subject if I may ask.
Thank you in advanceRachel
