Hi Cameron,

I sent you some information (see attached) some time ago in response to your request. It included the decline-in-value amounts by parcel and year for each of the properties. I'm afraid I do not have correspondence to share. This is all done through the Executive Office, which oversees the Assessment Appeals Boards.

Please let me know if this is sufficient, or if there is something else (or something in particular) that you are looking for. You can reach me directly at 213/974-3101 if you'd like to discuss this request further.

Have a wonderful weekend.
Regards,
Robert
