Forgive me on a technical point to that, but I'm reading across several on the link you said shows Emails not included in your FOIA. Well, I do
notice the ones that come up first on the link have something in common. The majority I saw came from John Q Citizen, were unsolicited and were not
SO.. Did your FOIA request Emails between City people, to/from the general public or both? I'm wondering if they just got a wee bit creative about
how they interpreted your request for how much..or little they returned. Those also have something else in common, from what I am seeing. They're all
anti-Quan and some, rather viciously so. That would be the reasoning, I imagine, for creative interpretation...if that is what happened.
So I don't fall into a similar pitfall in following your lead with FOIA requests.....could a lack of specificity be the problem? I imagine anyone
filing can get so specific that a 3yr old would understand the request....so is that necessary by the look of what you're finding?
