I wanted to recontact you regarding the Public Records Request about MBDC originally made on January 20, 2011.

In it, we requested the last three evaluations of MBDC.

In the documents we received, there are several pieces of correspondence from MBDC, a 2008 contract, a draft contract from the 90s, a contract extension, several exhibits, and a number of legislative documents.

I don't see anything that meets the standard of an evaluation. Have I missed something? Were these evaluations not done?

From: Michael Morisy

Hi Matt,

Sorry, I meant to CC you on this follow up as well.

Best,

Michael

Hi Michael:

Jason Lefferts, our Communications Director, is going to follow up with you regarding your question.

And, just a note, Melissa is no longer volunteering with us. I have added Keeana Saxon, our new Deputy General Counsel, to this email (for her information).

From: Michael Morisy
