Dear Mr. Breen:

We have spoken before so I believe you already know the following
information, but as responding to a FOIA request is mandatory, please be
aware that the Virginia Freedom of Information Advisory Council was created
to issue opinions on the operation and application of the Freedom of
Information Act (FOIA), to publish educational materials, and to provide
training about FOIA. We are not a repository of any records, other than
those created by this office. We do not have the records you seek. Please
do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about FOIA.

Hi Mr. Gernhardt. I’m confused how this was routed to you. I believe I entered the information for Sue Kochanski when creating this request. How it was routed to you is a mystery to me.

From: Richmond Procurement Department

I'm not sure either, but it's no problem, we often get requests meant for
other public bodies.

Dear Mr. Breen,

In a prior VFOIA request made to the Department of Procurement Services, you stated that you were not a resident of the Commonwealth of Virginia, but believed you were afforded access to Virginia public records as a representative of your blog, which you considered a magazine. Based upon its review of the blog, available at https://rth-media.blogspot.com/, the Department of Procurement Services has concluded your blog does not qualify under Va. Code Sec. 2.2-3704(A) as a magazine with circulation in the Commonwealth of Virginia. As a result, the Virginia Freedom of Information Act does not afford your blog access to the public records of the City of Richmond.

Thank you,

Sue Kochanski
City of Richmond
