CO's-SOS-CORA

What information did the ECT request from the Eagle County Public School District?

Answer:  Information/Explanation of why our most recent Public School Mill Levy had dropped by a full point.  See below.

Test-1

So what’s the problem?

Answer:  The so called “Director of Communications” for the EC School District a Mr. Dan Dougherty – doesn’t like the fact the email that was sent came from the general Email account “Staff@EagleCountyTimes.com

Dan-Dougherty

Cartoon?  What is Mr. Dougherty talking about?

Turns out – the Staff Email inbox is a general ECT email account used by more than one person, Dan.

Further Dan, Colorado statute only speaks to “how” the polite/timely/professional CORA request shall be made – the law does not speak to “who” is making that request.

A Staff email account with a reasonable request – is all that is legally required.

Hence Mr. Dougherty your position (as stated above) is not legally defensible.
