Public Records Request: What LIMO SERVICES are used by Medford High School???

or Keeper of the Records

Medford, MA 02155

Dear Keeper of the Records:

This is a request under the Massachusetts Public Records Law (M. G. L. Chapter 66, Section 10). I am requesting that I be provided a copy of the following records:

---the CORI reports on all employees of ANY limousine services Medford High School might be using for proms and other events

---any records and documents of Medford High School engaging with a limo service, RC Limos, operated by the president of the Medford City Council  (Informative note: RC Limos may be a private entity, however, with elected officials - say Donald Trump, for example - being in positions of authority, we need to scrutinize their business ethics for public safety reasons.  We do not know if some bank robber or any other dangerous individual is driving a student or students to some destination.  This is not a statement about RC Limos, which might be pure as snow; this is a public records request as Mr. Caraviello is a public figure and citizens may take it for granted that their safety is assured when dealing with a public figure.  As Mr. Caraviello recently engaged in malicious prosecution to deny this resident First Amendment rights - and as Mr. Caraviello lost the case in criminal court, as noted in the local paper, Mr. Caraviello's ethics are now seriously in question by his abuse of our court system to attempt to silence a critic.  This is simply a request to see that RC Limos, if it engages with students, is on the up and up.  As stated, perhaps the company is pure as snow.  If so, there should be no hassle in obtaining records of the high school engaging with RC Limos or any other limo service.  This is also very important because a famous sex offender who recently died was employed - allegedly - by a Boston limo company after he served his prison sentence for rape.  Given Medford High School's recent problems with a guidance councilor, there is all the more reason for the transparency that Superintendent Belson witnessed was denied the citizens at the council meeting of 3/21/17.  Free speech denied by the owner of RC Limos himself, Rick Caraviello.  Whenever there are free speech violations, it is our obligation to dig deeper and find out if someone engaging in censorship is hiding something. Thank you.)

I recognize that you may charge reasonable costs for copies, as well as for personnel time needed to comply with this request.

The Public Records Law requires you to provide me with a written response within 10 business days. If you cannot comply with my request, you are statutorily required to provide an explanation in writing.

Again, thank you (for your prompt attention to this serious matter.)
