I am emailing you from the City of Long Beach. We noticed that your post regarding a public records request for the Amazon HQ2 Bid (found here<https://www.muckrock.com/foi/long-beach-291/amazon-hq2-bid-45308/>) erroneously states that the Mayor of Long Beach provided the response to your request. As indicated below, the City of Long Beach Office of the Records Coordinator (or simply "City of Long Beach") received and responded to your request, not the Mayor of Long Beach. We kindly request that you revise your posting to reflect the correct information.
Thank you for your time.
