To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the New York State Freedom of Information Law (1977 N.Y. Laws ch. 933), I hereby request the following records:
And and all correspondence, written or electronic, between former Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer (and/or any former members of his staff) and Columbia University Senior Executive Vice President Robert Kasdin (and/or any members of his office, or representatives of the University), dated between January 1, 2006 and the date when this request is processed.
In 2008, the Columbia Daily Spectator reported:
"After stressing his role as an intermediary for all parties throughout the Manhattanville planning process, Stringer pulled aside Columbia Senior Executive Vice President Robert Kasdin, saying, 'You were a major part of my life this year.' " (As is published online here: http://www.columbiaspectator.com/2008/02/12/borough-president-gives-annual-address)
I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.
