Re; MANY PUBLIC RECORDS STILL UNDER WRAPS SINCE AUG. 1
Dear Ms. Schwartz:
This note details some of the documents requested since Aug. 1, but still kept under wraps. Just to be clear: You do not own these records; you are merely the custodian of these records. The people own them, and anyone should be able to see them promptly during regular business hours.
Here is a partial list:
* Billing records, re; defense of civil rights lawsuit.
* Chinni billing records from July [missing from package of Jan. - June 2007].
* Any and all records, including minutes, phone logs and emails related to what turned out to be suppression of the write-in vote during student elections this year.
* Records of who was on the ballot, who was taken off the ballot, who was solicited to run by the administration and who "won" various elections without factoring in the write-in ballots.
* Vote totals for all candidates. Apparently vote totals were not announced to students, and they still do not know who really won the elections. Could there be additional fraud beyond suppression of the write-in ballots? Were any positions created for administration-favored candidates who lost? Has there been additional altreation of / tampering with student personal records beyond what was revealed in testimony before a U.S. District Court judge?
* Various insurance records.
* Documents requested Aug. 28.
It is a Class A Misdemeanor CGS Sec. 1-240 to destroy a public record. Destruction of a public record is punishable by up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine.
Failure to comply promptly with the Aug. 28 request will result in a formal complaint, requests for subpoenas of witnesses and a request for a $1,000 fine. The time frame for prompt production is about to pass, if it has not passed already. Certainly contracts, evaluations and payroll records are not kept in secret, off-site locations that are difficult to access.
Thank you very much.
