2010-14 PSA Budgets for Secretary William Galvin

Beryl Lipton filed this request with the Executive Office for Administration and Finance of Massachusetts.
Est. Completion None
No Responsive Documents


From: Beryl Lipton

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Massachusetts Public Records Law, M.G.L. c.66, ยง10, I hereby request the following records:

All public service announcement budgets since January 1, 2010 for the Secretary of the Commonwealth William Galvin

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as we believe this request is in the public interest, as suggested but not stipulated by the recommendations of the Massachusetts Supervisor of Public Records. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

I expect the request to be filled in an accessible format, including for screen readers, which provide text-to-speech for persons unable to read print. Files that are not accessible to screen readers include, for example, .pdf image files as well as physical documents.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, 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 10 calendar days, as the statute requires.


Beryl Lipton

Mr. Lipton,

The Executive Office for Administration and Finance does not have any documents that are responsive to your August 29, 2014 public records request (below). The budget information submitted to this office does not include separate public service announcement budgets for the Secretary of the Commonwealth.

As an independent Constitutional officer, the Secretary of State does not provide this office with the same level of spending plan data as an executive agency. You may also want to take a look at the spending information available through Open Checkbook<http://opencheckbook.itd.state.ma.us/analytics/saw.dll?Dashboard>.
