From Ryan Olshan:
In a response I received today for a public record request requesting a copy of the Department of Animal Care and Control's multi-year department improvement program, which was established in 2001, County replied, "The Department has no specific records responsive to your request for '[c]opy of the Departments multi-year department improvement program, which was established in 2001.'"
In Marcia Mayeda's press release dated August 12, 2008, she stated, "The Los Angeles County Department of Animal Care and Control today announced it is entering into its third phase of a multi-year department improvement program, established in 2001, to improve the effectiveness of the nation's largest animal care and control agency."
How can the Department be entering into the third phase of a program that they've admitted there's no record of it? It looks like Mayeda lied to the press and the public.
At least Ross Pool from LAAS is talking to me about the Pierce investigation and I expect a response soon, which I will send to the heads of Pierce as well as the entire community college system. I also plan on photgraphing the farm animals there and we can see if they try to take the camera away from me.
Really, they thought the storm would blow over, did they?
