I am a reporter with The Markup. I am requesting all documents and records regarding Donald J. Trump and/or The Trump Organization's participation in the New York City Department of Transportation's Adopt-A-Highway program for a stretch of the Henry Hudson Parkway/West Side Highway.

More specifically, on this subject, I'm seeking copies of all email and written communications with other city officials, all communications with Donald J. Trump/The Trump Organization/any representative of Trump or any of his business interests, communications sent to/received from members of the public, communications with federal officials or the White House, communications with members of the media, bills and invoices, telephone and voice mail messages, and notes/agendas/transcripts from in-person or teleconference meetings.

The Markup is a non-profit news organization and, as such, I am requesting a fee waiver of all document retrieval and reproduction costs.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
