Dear Shawn:

FYI, we use Gmail (since 2011) and ran searches using All Mail and the
To/From filters for any emails To/From "" as you
requested. Ashley does not have any responsive records on her account. On
my account, I have four emails from Todd Divers
(Commissioner of Revenue) concerning FOIA training presentations and one to
Sheriff James Brown regarding a training certificate for completing the
local elected officials FOIA course, all this year. I also ran the same
search on the account and found four
additional emails, three concerning FOIA training and the fourth advising
Commissioner Divers to consult other counsel about Code ยง 58.1-3
(concerning the secrecy of tax records). Please let me know if you would
like me to forward those to you, and if I should use this email address or
a different one to do so.

- Alan
