Hi Matt,

I received your records request for all emails from March 5th - March 9th sent and received from everyone in the office, including the Governor.I spoke with our Chief of Staff and we need you to be more specific with what to search for.

Thank you,

I do not believe that further specification is needed, as I am not interested in any particular topics within any emails - only each email's metadata. The metadata surrounding the requested information, though intrinsically tied to the emails themselves, is stored as separate records within email systems' databases and determination of release based on search criteria, etc, should be made as such. If you would like any technical documentation to extract this information, please let me know.

From: Office of the Governor - Nebraska

Hi Mr. Chapman,

Please see the attached letter.

Thank you,
