* public sentiment
* public perception
* media reaction
* press reaction

I would also like the initial replies sent in response to those emails by the members listed above.

Please limit the search for the time period June 1st, 2013 through original receipt of this request.

Please also include as responsive documents any processing notes/internal emails/memos generated in the fulfillment of this request.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.
