Mr. Richardson:

Our records indicate that our office did not send a response to your FOAA request by email dated 5-8-15 regarding the American Legislative Exchange Council. The Maine Attorney General's Office made reasonable efforts to determine if we had any public records responsive to your request and found none.

Thank you - Amy Oliver

Hello Ms. Oliver,

Thank you for following up on this request. However, it appears that Ms. Gardiner sent us responsive materials in May. Could you clarify your message, please?

Thank you.

Mr. Richardson –

Sorry for the confusion. Phyllis Gardiner, AAG did have a copy of her response to you dated 5-15-15. As I indicated in my previous email, the database did not indicate that this request was open or closed and I needed clarification on the same.

Thank you for your patience.

Amy Oliver
