Hi Kirsten,

These are great. When we spoke on the phone, you mentioned that these types of email records are also available for a few years before 2015. Would it be possible to also get the media requests emailed to the Mayor's office in the earlier years that you have available?

I understand that receiving those records might take a while given the need to redact personal information etc., but having records from several years would be very helpful for my research project. I don't need to have these records immediately and would be fine with you filing time extensions to the request as needed so the request would not become overly burdensome.

Thanks,
Erik
