Hi Jasper - I am looping in Karen Pallas who is our records officer. We will do our best to respond within three business days and, while I do not believe the response will be voluminous, I would ask for a little flexibility given the Christmas holiday and the fact that a number of staff members, including our records officer, will be away from the office for all or a part of next week. Thanks. Jaye

From: Office of the Governor - Vermont

Hi Jasper, as I noted below, the records you have requested are not immediately available for inspection due to the Christmas holidays and multiple staff absences. Additional time is needed to collect and appropriately examine a number of separate and distinct records. I anticipate I will be able to respond to your request by close of business on Monday, January 31, 2018.

Thank you for your patience. Jaye
