Thank you Robin,
As I explained in our conversation earlier this morning I have no issues with your fidelity to Florida Statutes in supplying public records.
That being said this is huge embarrassment for all concerned and in particular for a Manager who withheld evidence of a major internal control failure for well in excess of a month. Acceptance or rejection of the 04-22-2014 DF by Finance and or Legal will like confirm this suspicion.
While I can certainly wait until all public records requests including this one despite its sensitivity are filled, I would like to know if either Finance or Legal or the Manager’s office will be providing any ‘public record’ of approval or denial of this DF ??
It would be a well seasoned karma indeed if Florida’s Supreme Court were called upon to rule on Port Orange’s policy condoning the wanton destruction of public records in connection with either approvals or denials of ‘draft’ DF’s under Manager Kisela who actively disparaged my 1st Amendment rights in an attempt to shut me up politically under the pretext of fictitious public records violations.
Are you expecting to provide the public records I have requested or should the 1stAmendment Foundation be readied to give the City a needed nudge ??

I have asked several departments to check and double check for any copies they may have with or without signatures. I will forward anything that I receive to you.

Thank you Robin,
I understand the volume impractically of retaining pure drafts.
However once another departments approval is bestowed on a document, OR such approval is denied for cause or concern — that approval or denial becomes a separate public record unto itself independent of the draft itself.
I am un clear if approvals or denials are physically affixed to the DF or if they are conveyed by e-mail ?
In either even I would again inquire as to whether there are any public records indicating any approval, OR rejection of the agenda item we have been discussing.
