The Alaska Public Records Act states that I have the right to review public records. I want to review the copies of Palin's (redacted) emails before I dish out $725 for duplication fees and hundreds more on top of that for shipping.
For the last few years, hundreds of thousands of dollars has been spent on expanding your Anchorage gov's office. You have transferred more positions from Juneau to Anchorage than other governors, not counting Sarah. For all intent and purposes, you occupy the Anchorage office as much as the Juneau one.
So, why is it that the copies of Palin's (redacted) emails can't be shipped up here for review before members of the public spend their precious dollars on them?
Why has your free-wheeling staff taken such a hard, rigid and inflexible approach to the dissemination of these public records, continue to increase
the cost of these records and erect more barriers for the average Alaskan by not shipping these records to your Anchorage office for review?
Why has your staff only implemented taxing ways to disclose these (redacted) public documents? What about scanning them?
Am I to understand that when it's convenient for you and your staff, the Anchorage office becomes a viable extension of your Juneau office, except when it serves the public re: the review of these emails as stated in the Public Records Act?
So, is it also your position that I have to expend more money to fly down to Juneau to review these (redacted) public records before I decide whether to dish out over $1,000 for these (redacted) public records?
