Dear Mr. Kenney,

The City is continuing to process your attached request but it requires additional time to do so. The City has been processing a very high volume of requests and appeals recently which has strained its capacity to respond. Thus, would you kindly grant the City an extension of time until 7/11/18 to respond to your request?

I certainly want to help out the City when I can. For the subject matter of this particular request, however, there is a big announcement coming up this month.

Let me explain: This request is about Philadelphia competing to be the headquarters for the Army's new Futures Command. According to press reports, Philly is a finalist in the competition, and the Secretary of the Army will announce the winner by the end of the month (i.e. within the next 15 calendar days).

I wouldn't normally have an issue with waiting until July 11th, but for the sake of public transparency, it would be much better for the documents to be released prior to the Army's announcement. Is there any way to have the processing expedited?

From: Mayor's Office

Hi Mr. Kenney,

I’m not familiar with the timeline regarding the potential announcement so I apologize for any confusion there. I can try to expedite this but we will require more time simply due to the volume of requests and appeals we have been processing recently. Would you be amenable to an extension until 7/3/18?

Thank you,
Robert

From: T.J. Kenney

Okay, thanks for meeting with me in the middle. I can take an extension until 7/3/18.
