Thank you very much, Ms. Tindall. Have a good week.

To whom it may concern:

I appeal the denial of access regarding my records equest, which was first made on 9/29/2014. I had requested emails between Hunter College and New York City Hall.

The records that were denied include very nearly every sentence in responsive emails that was not a press release or prepared remarks. Not one of the many redactions included a reason for exemption or a reference to an applicable exemption in the FOIL.

As required by the Freedom of Information Law, the head or governing body of an agency, or whomever is designated to determine appeals, is required to respond within 10 business days of the receipt of an appeal. If the records are denied on appeal, please explain the reasons for the denial fully in writing as required by law.

In addition, please be advised that the Freedom of Information Law directs that all appeals and the determinations that follow be sent to the Committee on Open Government, Department of State, One Commerce Plaza, 99 Washington Ave., Albany, New York 12231.

Thank you,
Conor Skelding

Hi Mr. Skelding. I am following up on your letter regarding Hunter's redaction of material provided to you under the Freedom of Information Law. I would be happy to discuss what was redacted and why. Please note that all redactions were made under authority of Public Officers Law Section 87.2 (a.1). The portions that were redacted "are specifically exempted from disclosure under state or federal statute . . .if disclosed would constitute an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy."

I look forward to discussing this with you. Please call me at (212) 772-4220.

Sincerely,

Reggie Tindall
