SAB e-mails, $507 deposit plus 15cents/page: Priceless

The City of St. Augustine Beach has a Hillary Clinton e-mail problem -- at least three Commissioners are using private e-mails for government business -- it's our money. The City demands a $507 deposit and 15 cents per page. In the words of the great American diplomat, Charles Cotesworth Pinckney, "not one penny for tribute."

Dear Mayor O'Brien, Vice Mayor George and Commissioner Snodgrass, Samuels and England:
1. Please disclose, by return e-mails, all City business conducted using your private e-mail addresses, including
2. No "charge" or "deposit" is either desired or required: this is our public business using Commissioners' private e-mails.
3. No "redactions" are justified. The reason for any "redactions" has not explained.
4. I don't want any paper copies, so the fiat flat rate of 15 cents per page for electronic records is not justifiable.
5. Likewise, the ukase inflicting a $507 "deposit" is lacking in legal or factual justification. Please cease and desist from attempts to inflict illegal charges.
6. If the City of St. Augustine Beach, Florida -- any one of you Commissioners -- does/do not agree to provide on the SAB website and return e-mail our public business conducted using your "private" emails, will you kindly agree to mediation by longtime Assistant Attorney General Patricia Gleason --- for decades our best expert on Florida Open Records law?
7. Thanking you in advance for your full compliance with Article I, Section 24 of our Florida Constitution, adopted by vote of 3.8 million voters in 1992 (83%), I am,
With kindest regards, I am,
Sincerely yours,
Ed Slavin
