Re: Your letter dated June 12, 2015

Dear Mr. Richardson:

Today I received your letter; I need to ask for clarification. I have no
record of receiving the May 8th letter, were you the requester? Also is
this a request addressed to the Office of the New Mexico Attorney General
or a copy of a request sent to another office?

If it is addressed to the OAG, could provide a date range and as much
information as possible. Thank you for your attention to this matter. I
look forward to hear from you soon.

Sincerely,

An interim response, stating the request is being processed.

From: Alex Richardson

Hello Mr. Russell,

I am indeed the requestor. Thanks for getting back to me, sorry that our email got lost. I've narrowed the request for other attorneys general by this point, so I'll go ahead and narrow it for you as well.

- A keyword search of the email records of the attorney general and his/her immediate assistants for the terms ALEC and American Legislative Exchange Council.
- An office wide search for electronic communications with the domain @alec.org and with any known representatives of ALEC.
- The date range 2010 to the present is sufficient.

Please let me know if you need any more details - I'm happy to help!

Best,
Alex Richardson
