Where is your copy of your written request for the documents?

Did the custodian respond by e-mail? Is the attachment you sent to this office the original response from the custodian, or did you copy it?

My original written request (via email) is at the bottom of this string dated 3/15/10 9:21 AM
The custodian's response (via email) is above that dated 3/25/10 4:57 PM (which I believe is a day late)
Yes, this was all done via the Web.

I probably should have just sent you my blog upload that time date stamps everything (and is rather public):

I will open an appeal for you. What is the mailing address for Mr. Hajir for hard copy?

Hey Joanne,

Hmm...that's a good question. Since he is an elected volunteer who lives outside Amherst, I'm not sure about his home address. Probably should just mail to: Amherst Regional High Schoo,l 21 Mattoon Street, Amherst, Ma. 01002
c/o Amherst Regional School Committee

So I guess in addition to a copy editor I could also use a secretary. I did just now go back to the Secretary of State's webpage and found an email address for the Supervisor of Records and resent my original complaint, and the Regional Committee Chair Farshid Hajir response/denial (which was a day late) all nicely time/date stamped.

Ah, the convenience of the Web.

Should have just sent them my original upload

'Course if you are going to be a copy editor you might as well take out the comma from your spelling of school.

"Amherst Regional High Schoo,l"

Have at it cub reporter.

Wow, since you pay attention to such trivial typos you probably should have gotten the meaning of the simply statement about NEEDING a copy editor.

Nitwit.

Oops, I meant "simple" statement.

Oh, I don't know...maybe a Cowardly Anon Nitwit like yourself?

Have 1 Question for the Originator: Was the Secretary of Commonwealth - Public Records Division helpful with you getting the records you were looking for? Or did you get a response that was Not in your favor? Just wondering... Thank you.
