To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Colorado Open Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

Please provide the criminal history disclosure Keo Frazier submitted as part of her acceptance of employment. I already have a Colorado Bureau of Investigation report and as a public safety issue I want to confirm that Ms. Frazier disclosed her criminal background honestly and completely.

I am also quite concerned regarding more than a few inconsistencies involving the hiring policy for DPS and the violations to that policy I've already uncovered. I might add that this is an ongoing effort that is driven by a desire of those involved to uncover wrong doing that impacts the students and families of Emily Griffith, staff and faculty, alumni, and the business owners in our community who have supported EGTC for some 104 years, as well as the tax payers who have a legal right to know.

And again, thank you for your timely efforts.

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 3 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Ronald Lee
