Zach -

I don't understand what you are following up on. According to our records, you were sent our response to your FOIA on 11/21, and your request has been closed. Did you not receive the email on 11/21? The email would've come from Sarah Kotler. In case you did not, I am attaching our response again.

If you need to call me, my ph. no. is below. This would be much easier over the phone.

If I need to call you, please provide me a phone no. Thank you!
