       Re: Denying Access to City’s Email & Council, Custodian of Records Related to FOIA
           Under Applicable Federal and State Laws

Mr. Boddy:

For some time, we have been “dancing” on the subject of my FOIA written requests. They have
been numerous in order to get to the truth about the shenanigans occurring in Lawrence, Ma.
from various offices, elected officials and city employees.

Clearly, you and certain others are agitated that I have been inundating you and Mr. Maloney
with FOIA requests but it is my right to do so. Citizens are allowed to question their government.

As a taxpayer, I have every right to question the financial expenditure and health of the city of
Lawrence, Ma. If you and the “others’ are uncomfortable with my questions, prying and research,
it is too bad and perhaps a sign of more to come and expose. I have already conveyed your
previous attempts to dissuade and impede my access to public records with the public records
division of the Secretary of State and applicable authorities. As an attorney, you should be more
than aware this impediment is a violation of one’s right to access their government.

Below is the transcript evidence regarding what I believe is a willful act of blocking me from
emailing you, Mr. Bonet, Mr. Maloney, Mayor Lantigua and the city council in seeking answers
and documents under the law.

The evidence below shows that the eddievsongs@gmail.com has been blocked and my email
transmission to the same group, detailed below, from rockinsockin247@yahoo.com was
successfully transmitted earlier today.

Therefore, if my the close of business on Monday, March 4, 2012 this illegal blocking of my email,
which I contend violates my rights under the law, I will engage an attorney to file suit and seek
any and all relief from a court of competent jurisdiction.

Please govern yourself accordingly and we shall surely continue this discussion.

Sincerely,
/s/ EDDIE GARCIA
Eddie Garcia
