In six days, Santa Monica staff found, and will show me 193 documents regarding communications between staff, Council and the Mayor, as well as the City and the County, regarding the killing of ground squirrels in Palisades Park. AND, they are still looking for more.
I had a request for doucments into LA City Hall regarding who leaked my emails to LAAS to a certain reporter at CityBeat; it took LA THREE MONTHS for LA to respond.
This is a new benchmark for transparency for any municipality I have ever known. I am very, very proud of Santa Monica.
Now to see the County demand letters, and whether a contract has been let for extermination of the squirrels.
