In response to your recent e-mail:
· There is no standing order or request for your e-mails from Ms. Rupe or anyone else.
· The same day you forwarded the e-mail to our office Ms. Rupe called in, I mentioned your email; she then made her verbal request for a copy.
· The information was immediately available therefore, I forwarded it.
· Under the current records management policy, there is no charge as the task took under ˝ hour
· I have not forwarded any other e-mails from you to Ms. Rupe.
In speaking with the County Attorney’s Office, we have been advised against fulfilling standing orders for e-mails. It is suggested that you make a public records request at the close of every week / month to request e-mails from specific persons/addresses.
Commissioner Fisher advises that if you would like to meet with him on this matter to please contact our office and we will be happy to arrange a time (321-264-6750).
District 1 Commission
Request from Ms. McKinney dated October 11, 2011 @ 12:54 am:
Comm. Fisher and Ms England,
If you will review the Public Records Request I sent to Ms England on Oct 6, 2011, I did NOT request Ms England to forward to me the e-mail she forwarded to rupe. I DID request the following from Ms England:
"1) Copy of the PRR in WHATEVER FORM it exists, from rupe to you for the e-mail from me to the BOCC dated Sep. 7, 2011.
"2) Copy of any invoice given rupe for the time/effort spent to do the PRR for the Sep. 7, 2011 e-mail.
"3) Copy of "standing order" PRR from rupe that requests that any e-mails from Linda McKinney to the BOCC or Brevard County in general be forwarded to rupe; and date of commencement of "standing order".
"4) Any bills or invoices associated with such a request."
----- Close quote
I requested Ms England send the Public Records Request "from YOUR computer, from YOUR files." I STILL request a COPY of the PRR that rupe submitted to the D1 office that would have given Ms England the instruction to forward my e-mail to rupe. I request it whether it be in the form of an e-mail, fax, memo, notes taken from a voice conversation, personal reminder, calendar event, sticky note, fly's wings, whether it's written in gum on the bottom of a shoe, I request to physically see a copy of the Public Records Request rupe submitted that got her the e-mail all this hassle has been about. It is my RIGHT under FL SS 119 to receive it and I WILL receive it one way or another, or there will be an admission made that there was no PRR and that Ms England acted without such a request.
Unfortunately, IF this be the case, she either acted in the interests of rupe, performing a personal favor for rupe, and then trying to hide the fact via not responding to my Public Records Request that I sent to all Commissioners' offices simultaneously. This is the second PRR request for a copy of rupe's request. FL SS 119 is perfectly clear as to what should happen. Denying me only endangers your careers. Do not delay.
To those who were unaware (those who have not read my website page), I hand delivered to D1's office a Public Records Request that read:
