a copy of the NMIPRA request of the APS

To: Custodian of Public Records, Albuquerque Public Schools

From: Charles MacQuigg, XXXX, Albuquerque, NM 87108, (505)XXX_XXXX

This constitutes a request for all documents, papers, letters, books, maps, tapes, photographs, recordings and other materials, regardless of physical form or characteristics, that are used, created, received, maintained or held by or on behalf of any APS and relate to public business, whether or not the records are required by law to be created or maintained and excluding any records whose request is prohibited by any agreement between myself and APS.

All public records of investigations into the conduct and competence of Gil Lovato within his public service for the public schools; the APS.

Your previously expressed denial

"...those complaints (the public records that I requested) are confidential and are not public information because thy include "letters or memorandums which are matters of opinion"

is unacceptable.

I would point you to the law which states;
"Requested public records containing information that is exempt and nonexempt from disclosure shall be separated by the custodian prior to inspection, and the nonexempt information shall be made available for inspection."

If you would please, acknowledge that you have recieved this request and that it meets your needs.
Ched MacQuigg
