Dear Attorney Jacques,
Under the Maine Freedom of Access Act § 402 et seq., I have reason to believe there was discussion about me at a staff meeting this past Wednesday March 2nd that had nothing to do with my pending litigation. I also have reason to believe that there was communication between Roby Fecteau before and/or after the meeting with at least one other City Employee with allegations made about me. I am requesting any and all information regarding the discussion and any allegations made by Mr. Fecteau, including records of any phone calls, text messages or any other types of messages he made from City Hall or from City Property. I observed during a public presentation he was giving that he had a tab open for what appeared to be a private mail account but must assume he accesses it while on the job. I would request any records include communication from this account if in fact it was an email account. I can provide a photo to help verify the account.
If there are any fees for searching or copying these records, please inform me of the amount. However, I would request a waiver of all fees in that the disclosure of the requested information is in the public interest and will contribute significantly to the public’s general understanding. This information is not being sought for commercial purposes.
If you intend to deny this request, I will expect to hear from you within the five business days mandated by the law. Also, if you expect a significant delay in responding to this request, please contact me with information about when I might expect copies or the ability to inspect the requested records.
