Ms. Shure,

Attached is the response that was sent out recently. While the initial indication was that records existed, there are none that are conversations with the Governor. We do have 3,178 pages of emails from the public during this time period. I do not believe this is what you are looking for, but of you would like copies of these there will be a charge of $317.80.

Thank you,


Richele K. Taylor
