Good afternoon,

I am following up on a records request that was submitted in October from this email address, requests@muckrock.com. You very expediently attempted to send the response to a couple different emails, I believe your response ended up being diverted to a spam folder or the email was not recognized because I never received it. I apologize, and hope you would be so kind to resend that one more time to the original email in which the request was sent, requests@muckrock.com. Again, sorry for the technical difficulties I really appreciate your patience!

Thank you so much,

Grace Raih

Just realized the problem as I sent out that email - my server is autocorrecting the email address when I send it to you and thereby deleting a portion rendering it unusable - which I could not see on my end. To be safe, please re-send the response to gracearaih@gmail. Again, I am so sorry for the confusion!

Thank you very much,

Grace
