You owe me $1900.

On December 2, 2009,
I filed a request, for public records with
APS Custodian of Public Records
Rigo Chavez.

The records I have requested will
expose the truth about the
involvement of senior APS
administrators in felony criminal
misconduct, link.

To date, I have received nothing in response to the request.

The New Mexico Inspection of Public Records Act provides
for penalties of $100 per day for refusing to comply with the law.

Rigo Chavez will not pay the fines,
neither will anyone else in the leadership of the APS.

You (taxpayers) will. The fine will be paid from your unwitting
support for what you were told would be the education of children.

It is fair in at least one respect, if you were not so complacent
about the issue of open and transparent government, there
would be no opportunity for politicians and public servants to
hide these records without some personal consequence.

Do you suppose that Rigo Chavez, or any other senior APS
administrator would continue to hide these records if it were
costing them $100 a day for every day they did?

I have offered to settle out of court. If they refuse,
if I have to sue, you will be on the hook for court costs,
my lawyer, and theirs as well.

It's not their money, they don't care.
However, there will be piggyback crooked citizens who will take your idea of suing on the Info act and probably make an illegitimate mint of it.
APS thinks they are above the law, above ethics, above human decency. As long as they personally are sitting their fat asses comfortably, nothing else seems to matter... that is a cancer that runs through the whole system of people that work in "the towers".
