Hello

This email is in response to your CPRA request for contracts between the
City and the DNC related to the 2000 convention.

We have conducted a search and found no responsive records in our
possession. As you can see from the linked article (immediately below),
the DNC signed a contract with a private citizens' committee that was
organized to sponsor the convention, instead of with the city itself, as
usually happens.

I did find a reference to the master convention agreements between the DNC
and the private committee in the archives of the Loyola Marymount Library
(see here: http://www.oac.cdlib.org/findaid/ark:/13030/c8fj2hj6/entire_text/).
You may want to contact the library directly to see how to view those
records.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Mike Dundas
Deputy City Attorney
