• "Corrections Corporation of America."

In regards to all necessary requester status considerations, it should be noted that this request is being made by a member of the news media as part of a nationwide journalistic investigation on the privatization of corrections and institutions (physical, systemic, political, etc.) in the greater correctional and law enforcement system. In addition to being a news media request submitted in the public interest, all communications generated in the processing of this request, in addition to the requested materials, will be made available to the general public as part of a curated news series.

This request is not being made for commercial purposes.

Please note that this is a request for all communications regarding this company but this does not necessarily limit materials to those sent directly to or from the company itself. Materials may be limited to those created, sent, or received from September 1, 2016 through today.

Thank you very much for your help.

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 15 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Beryl Lipton

From: Beryl Lipton

Hello Ms. Dunlap,

Thank you very much for your help and your letter. However, I'm hoping that you could conduct a search for all other communications that reference the aforementioned terms, since I am interested in communication not only to and from the company but also internal messages, i.e. those that may have been received from constituents or between town employees; I understand that the town itself didn't hold the contract, but I wonder whether there might be other discussion of its operations and, now, closure.

Thanks so much for your help.

Best wishes,
Beryl

Hello Ms. Lipton,

The Town of Estancia has not received any internal messages from constituents or Town employees. Any verbal conversations, as in small talk, between employees is not in writing.
The Mayor did attend an informal meeting on I believe Tuesday July 25, 2017 in which Torrance County Commissioners and representatives from Core Civic met and those conversations were in the Mountain View Telegraph newspaper on July 27th.
You will need to contact Torrance County for any information they may have had with the Core Civic representatives. At this time, the Town of Estancia has no further documentation to provide.

I hope this helps, have a great day.
