• Corrections Corporation of America

including but not limited to all communications including/mentioning

• the @cca.com and @correctionscorp.com domain names
• "CCA"
• "Corrections Corporation of America."

Please include communications sent to, from, or regarding all representatives of the jurisdiction (current and at all relevant periods prior, spanning any period during which the jurisdiction was considering, engaged with, or ending relations with the aforementioned entity), including but not limited to the following officials, as applicable:

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.

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,

Beryl C.D. Lipton

Hello Mr. Vigil,

I'd be interested in any materials from 1995 onward, but if we could begin with January 1, 2014 through today, that would be great.

Thanks so much,
Beryl

From: Samuel Vigil

Good morning,

I have forwarded your email back to the City Clerk of Las Animas, Colorado for a formal response. In my discussions with her, it does not appear that we will have any information to disclose but she will prepare a formal response to your CORA request. Some of the representatives that you refer to in your initial request are not representatives of the City of Las Animas. Specifically, the Economic Development Director, Fire Chief, Finance Director, and Sheriff. Therefore, our response will only relate to those representatives falling within the City of Las Animas, Colorado. You will have to contact the other agencies directly with your CORA request.

Thank you,

Sam
