    Re: Appeal No. SPR07/2244

    Per your request for email addresses and websites for Boston City Council Candidates, I am advising you that the Boston Election Department currently does not keep this information in any list form, nor do we request it of candidates.

    Therefore, to comply with your request, it will be necessary for my staff to go through past correspondence to determine if an email or website address is attached to the correspondence.

    It should be noted that this search of past correspondence may reveal that no such information exists for particular candidates.

    Please find below an estimate of the cost of the work:

    One hour research by a student intern at $10.00 per hour $10.00
    Copies of each document @ $.20 per copy (27 copies x .20) $5.40
    Total Estimate $15.40

    I am basing this estimate on the fact that there are 27 candidates for City Council, in the District and At Large Races, and that one document is found for each candidate.

    Clearly understand, however, that some candidates may not have websites or use email, while others may do both, and we may have to copy two documents for one person, if the information requested is not all on one document.

    Upon receipt of your money order for $15.40, my staff will commence the research needed to fulfill your request.

    In the event that the research shows that you have overpaid, the excess amount will be refunded to you.
