Governor’s office slow walks open-records request

From The Complete Colorado:  The legal and press teams of Governor John Hickenlooper took an entire ten business days to hand over four* pieces of audio in response to an open records act request filed by Complete Colorado.

We filed the Colorado Open Records Act on January 6, the same day we learned reporters who showed up to cover a meeting between the governor and the influential group ‘Colorado Forum’ were told the event had been mistakenly put on the calendar of public events, and therefore, were not welcome to attend.

On January 11, Senior Deputy Legal Counsel for the governor Mark Bolton told us, “Your request encompasses a large category of records and is without sufficient specificity to allow the Office to prepare or gather the records within the three-day period.”
