Dear Mr. Huff,

I respectfully request that your office rescind the rejection of my request for Gov. Bullock's travel receipts.

I am a citizen of the State of Montana currently residing in Gallatin County.

As you can see here, I am listed as a current staff member at the Bozeman Daily Chronicle, a Montana newspaper.

The Gallatin County Elections Dept. can also attest to my being a registered voter (406) 582-3060.

I apologize for any inconvenience. Future requests to the Governors' office will clearly indicate my status as a citizen of the Treasure State.
