CC: James Bennett, City Manager
Dear Attorney Jacques,
Under the Maine Freedom of Access Act § 402 et seq.,, I'm trying to understand where Mayor Alan Casavant's campaign finances have come from and have noticed at least two people with the last name "Jalbert" have been donors. I also see some references to a wife/fiancee by the name of Patti with the same last name but I can't find any records of a wedding. I'm requesting any and all information on what association the Jalbert family has with the Mayor, the City and any transactions involving the City over $100.
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.
