Robert Porter received both my first and second emails – I received an automated response to my FOIA:
By: Diane Benjamin
This is story number 3. I don’t mind ruffling feathers when requests for information aren’t answered. The people I emailed in this story still have not responded: https://blnnews.com/2020/01/20/ever-heard-of-the-public-building-commission/
All I want is the minutes of meetings and financial reports.
Instead I got an anonymous email yesterday with a link to who is on the Public Building Commission. Progress!
It isn’t up to date because Jim Fruin is not listed. He has only been appointed since November of 2018, no rush to update the site:
Robert Porter is one of the people I contacted, he was listed as the FOIA officer. I will send him an official FOIA and see what happens.
Meanwhile, look at the list of members. Most of the names aren’t familiar to me.
Again, I have no problem with this commission other than there is Zero transparency.
