To Whom It May Concern,

I am again in receipt of your FOIA request from March 14, 2018. I have already responded to this FOIA request on March 22, 2018 and it is included below. There is nothing else to report nor will we communicate with you further. I do not have to respond multiple times for the same FOIA request. You have no phone number attached but your recent letter includes the response below.

Furthermore, you are from Somerville, MA. Virginia FOIA laws make us answerable to Virginia residents - which you are not. Please stop sending me the same FOIA request. It has already been answered! We do not have a jail nor do we have a contract for inmate communication services.
