After reviewing the Committee on Accounts agenda and seeing the request by Gary Hamer to terminate the dog park contract, I am writing to make the following request for information under RSA 91-A:

Please provide any and all email communications between Alderman at-Large Joe Kelly Levasseur and Gary Hamer, Heidi Hamer, Jon Hopwood, Dave Bigelow, Bill Barry and any member of the Board of Mayor and Aldermen regarding the Manchester Dog Park from June 1, 2013 to the present.

As Alderman Levasseur is want to use his personal email address for city business, this request includes his personal email account in addition to anything that may exist on this matter in his city provided email address.  Note well that this request includes any email sent between the aldermen regarding this matter to and from their city or personal email addresses as well.

Should you have any questions regarding this request, please call my cell.

Hi, Matt.
Per my conversation with Jennie Angell, I am writing to request the materials assembled in response to the Union Leader’s Right to Know Request in search of Alderman Levasseur’s emails to and from department heads and other city personnel.  Please be advised that in addition to that information, I would like whatever emails have been sent and received between the identified personnel and Alderman Levasseur since that request was made.  The intended scope of this request is to remain as defined by the Union Leader reporter’s original request.
Thank you,
RH Girard

I am filing a right to know request that duplicates the one filed by Joseph Levasseur July 31, 2013 seeking any and all emails from his jrwaa2@aol account “from the Manchester Building Department, specifically any emails from me to Mr. Sink or anyone in his office or anyone who could have been copied in on the email whether in his department or any other department or to anyone else by email. The specific emails I would like to have tracked were dated in 2011.” “I would like to know whether or not any of my emails to Max Sink were forwarded to anyone by email, or downloaded to print copy, and if so, when, to whom, and the dates the event occurred. If my emails were sent or forwarded to anyone, please review the link or the chain of occurrence and let me know to whom and when that occurred. So if Max sent an email to Mr. LaFreniere I would like to see if Mr. LaFreniere then sent my email to anyone else and who that person is, and if that person received the email I would like to know if that third party forwarded the email and when and to whom.”

Thank you, Nancy West, NH Sunday News 206-7711
