CC: James Bennett, City Manager
Dear Attorney Jacques,
Under the Maine Freedom of Access Act § 402 et seq., can you please confirm if at any point any Airport Commission Members were compensated directly or via another entity to represent any entity tied to the Airport other than the City before, during or after serving on the Airport Commission? In particular, the public would like to know if Gilman "Randy" Seaver ever was compensated to represent pilots or other entities that may have or will present conflicts of interest. Further, can you confirm how he was selected for the Commission and the reason for his resignation. Thank you.
If there are any fees for searching or copying these records, please inform me of the amount. However, I would request a waiver of all fees in that the disclosure of the requested information is in the public interest and will contribute significantly to the public’s general understanding. This information is not being sought for commercial purposes.
If you intend to deny this request, I will expect to hear from you within the five business days mandated by the law. Also, if you expect a significant delay in responding to this request, please contact me with information about when I might expect copies or the ability to inspect the requested records.
