Hi Jasper - just to clarify, do you want all email correspondence with officials the Vermont National or a more narrow set of correspondence relating to certain topics? Not clear why you have thrown in the search terms if you want all correspondence. Thanks so much. Jaye

Jaye,

Thanks for the quick response. If it's possible to get all correspondence, that would be great. But if y'all deem that request to broad, then please send along emails containing the key words I provided. Thanks!

From: Office of the Governor - Vermont

Thanks Jasper -This is to let you know we will need to extend the response date to no later than June 18, 2018 in accordance with 1 VSA 318(a)(5)(B) due to the need to search through, collect and review a voluminous amount of separate and distinct records demanded in this request. Thanks so much. Jaye

Thanks, Jaye.

Hi Jasper - Thank you for your patience. It turns out all emails which end in @mail.mil is too voluminous to easily produce, but we are searching that universe of emails as requested. We are doing our best to produce all records requested as timely as possible. Thanks. Jaye
