Public Utilities Commission and Harlan Kelly Jr.,

Attached are new Immediate Disclosure Requests under the Sunshine Ordinance and CPRA.

NOTE: Please be certain you have properly redacted all of your responses. Once you send them to us, there is no going back. The email address sending this request is a publicly- viewable mailbox. All of your responses (including all responsive records) may be instantly and automatically available to the public online via the MuckRock.com FOIA service used to issue this request (though the requester is an anonymous user, not a representative of MuckRock). Nothing herein is legal, IT, or professional advice of any kind. The author disclaims all warranties, express or implied, including but not limited to all warranties of merchantability or fitness. In no event shall the author be liable for any special, direct, indirect, consequential, or any other damages whatsoever. The digital signature, if any, in this email is not an indication of a binding agreement or offer; it merely authenticates the sender. Please do not include any confidential information, as I intend that these communications with the City all be disclosable public records.

Sincerely,
Anonymous

Thank you for your follow-up email. For clarification, on July 17, we informed you that we intended to provide you with an initial response to your request on or before July 29. It appears this initial response may not have been sent by that date.

Our initial response to your request for records is as follows: We have determined the SFPUC may have records responsive to your request. Due to the voluminous nature of your request, we estimate that we will be able to produce all responsive records to you on or before the end of December, 2021. In the interim, we will provide you with responsive records on a rolling basis as they become available.

SFPUC and Harlan Kelly Jr.:

This is a further immediate disclosure request for the contents of Harlan Kelly Jr trash or deleted items or similar folder for his government and personal email/text/chat message accounts (including all headers, timestamps, identity of participants, message bodies, metadata, attachments, images, and formatting, in their original electronic format), where any communicating party is another city employee or official or is any of Walter Wong, Harlan Wong, Melanie Lok, Irene Lok, Washington Wong, Florence Kong, Michael Tracy, Rudolph Dwayne Jones (Dwayne Jones), Dionjay Brookter, Harlan Kelly Jr., SFPD Chief William Scott, Jeff Kositsky, Sean Elsbernd, Mohammad Nuru, Alaric Degrafinried, Mary Ellen Carroll, Abigail Stewart-Khan, Sophia Kittler, or Mason Lee.

If such records are voluminous feel free to provide a listing of date/party/subject (or similar), and I can narrow the search. Nevertheless, you cannot destroy any records responsive to this request, for example by permanently deleting or emptying the trash.

Note that the City Attorney has opined that these kinds of "deleted" records are public, from the Good Govt Guide:

"Emails that are easily retrievable by the user must be searched in response to a public records request. This includes emails that have not been deleted; emails that have been put in the “Deleted Items” folder but have not been emptied from that folder (and hence are immediately retrievable); and emails that have been deleted and emptied from that folder but remain immediately retrievable by accessing the computer’s “Recover Deleted Items From Server” function."

You must recover whatever emails/text/chat messages are recoverable from your local trash/deleted folder and from your servers, if any.

If there are no such records, then you must explicitly indicate so.

YOU MUST PRESERVE AND MUST NOT DESTROY ANY RECORDS CURRENTLY IN THE TRASH/DELETED FOLDER - WE WILL APPEAL ALL WITHHOLDINGS.

If you use NextRequest or another 3rd party provider, please make the request and all documents completely public without sign-in.

NOTE: Please be certain you have properly redacted all of your responses. Once you send them to us, there is no going back. The email address sending this request is a publicly- viewable mailbox.
