I am in receipt of your record request regarding " e-mail communications either sent or received by Freeholder O'Dea and relating to official business for the period January 2015 through June 2020". Please note that your request, as written, is overly vague as it fails to seek specific identifiable government records. As such, your request is denied. Please feel free, however, to contact me at (202) 795-6250 or via e-mail at ncarroll@hcnj.us<mailto:ncarroll@hcnj.us> should you wish to discuss the possibility narrowing down your search. I would be more than happy to discuss same.

Very Truly Yours
Neil J. Carroll, Jr.
