Ms. Muldowney,

Thank you for your e-mail. You have requested documents under the provisions of the Virginia Freedom of Information Act. However, the Virginia Freedom of Information Act is not applicable to non-residents. McBurney v. Young, 569 U.S. 221 (2013). As your e-mail indicates you are a resident of Massachusetts, we do not believe the Virginia Freedom of Information Act requires RRHA
to provide the requested records to you.

Glenda Edwards Goh
Executive Director
