Dear Atty Scanlon, Keeper of the Records, Custodian of the Records,

Under the Massachusetts Public Records Act § 66-10 et seq., I am requesting an opportunity to inspect or obtain copies of public records that contain:

1) Any documents relating to Mike Cugno, husband of school committee person Anne Marie Cugno, including but not limited to: being appointed to the Medford Public SchoolsTechnology Advisory Committee that feature when he was appointed, by whom, and what his duties are

2)All documents regarding Anne Marie Cugno and Michael Cugno's participation in the corporation known as Medford Youth Soccer Inc. where they are listed on annual reports for 2005, 2006, 2007 - Mike Cugno as president and Anne Marie Cugno listed as clerk. I cannot find additional years with their names on the corporate documents however today, June 17, 2017, I did find Mr. Cugno's name on the Medford Youth Soccer Inc. Facebook page listed as an "at large member."  I have a screenshot of the page,

3)Any documents city hall and/or the high school have in regards to Mr and Mrs. Cugno's participation in the Medford Youth Soccer, Inc. including but not limited to  executive session documents and if there are any complimentary documents regarding their work or any complaint documents

4)Any documents city hall and/or the high school have in regards to Mike Cugno's participation on a fund raising corporation known as the Medford High School Alumni Association Inc. including but not limited  to who appointed Michael Cugno and what his duties are.

If there are any fees for searching or copying these records, please inform me if the cost will exceed $ 5.00   However, I would also like to request a waiver of all fees in that the disclosure of the requested information is in the public interest (Mrs. Cugno is running for city council and is currently on the school committee) and will contribute significantly to the public’s understanding of public sports and athletics as well as Medford fund raising activities for an entity utilizing Medford High School's name.  It would be excellent for this to be published on the school and city websites for the students and parents.

This information is not being sought for commercial purposes, though my website is an official business listed in the city clerk's office.  As it is not being used for business purposes yet is of great public interest, I would be happy if you merely published all the requested information on the city website.
The Massachusetts Public Records Act requires a response to this request within 10 days.  If access to the records I am requesting will take longer than this amount of time, please contact me with information about when I might expect copies or the ability to inspect the requested records.
If you deny any or all of this request, please cite each specific exemption you feel justifies the refusal to release the information and notify me of the appeal procedures available to me under the law.

Thank you for considering my request.

(Candidate for Mayor of Medford)
