Dear Mr. Hill:

I am writing in response to the Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) request you sent to the Council of the City of New York on the above date. You have requested all email correspondences including Speaker Christine Quinn between June 20, 2007 and June 20, 2008 containing several keywords in relation to plastic bags.

After reviewing the Speaker’s emails, no documents responsive to your request were found. To that end your request is denied. If you wish to appeal this decision you may do so in writing, within thirty days, to Lauren Axelrod, FOIL Appeals Officer, 15th Floor, 250 Broadway, New York , New York 10007.

With Kindest Regards,

Emerson Sykes
