Hello Ms. Guevarez,
Thank you for the quick response for my request. To ensure that a good faith search has occurred, would you mind describing the process by which your office looked for documents relating to my request?
Dear Mr. Richardson,
We asked each of the parties most likely to interact with a group such as ALEC to conduct a search for correspondence. We also checked the archived email records of the former Attorney General, Chief Deputy Attorney General, our Public Information Officer and our Press Secretary.
If you would like to appeal this office’s decision, please do so by sending a letter requesting review by the Chief Deputy Attorney General pursuant to 29 Del. C. s10005(e).
Katisha D. Fortune
Deputy Attorney General
820 N. French Street, 6th Floor
