Mr. Purvis, We will not respond to the request from "muckrock" as that does not appear to be a Tennessee citizen. Since you personally have made previous requests on other matters and have supplied your Tennessee driver's license showing Tennessee citizenship, I will reply to you. We don't respond to questions in Public Records Requests, only supply documents if they exist. There are no documents in the possession of the Memphis-Shelby County Airport Authority that are responsive to your request.
