To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the state Freedom of Information Act, G.L.M. c.4, €7, clause 26th, I hereby request the following records:
All Massachusetts' Parole Board decisions from the dates between Nov. 17, 2008 to Nov. 21, 2008.
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.
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 business days, as the statute requires.
Dear Mr. Morisy,
I have forwarded your request to the Parole Board for response. Unlike the Cinelli record of decision, which I happened to have readily available last week, EOPSS does not possess the documents you've requested below.
Gregory I. Massing
Executive Office of Public Safety and Security
Enclosed is a check for $18.85, as payment for the subset of documents you previously described. Specifically, I request all Massachusetts parole board decisions made from Nov. 17, 2008 to Nov. 21, 2008, for parolees with life sentences.
Thank you for your assistance and help in this matter.
