Mr. Best,

I have been assigned your FOIA request and would like to ask you a couple of questions. Do you have a number where I can reach you?

Thank you for your assistance.

Ginger Dolan,

Thanks for reaching out about my request. I generally dislike speaking on the phone, and prefer to keep FOIA related conversations in writing so that I don't get confused. If possible, I'd like to speak by email. If necessary though, I'm sure we can work out a time to speak by phone (sometimes it is simply easier). If this is about the scope of the request, then it may in fact be easier to speak on the phone and then follow up by email to create a written record and give us the best of both worlds.

Thank you again for reaching out. Let me know if email will work for you, and if not we'll work out a time to speak by phone.
