Ha! Obama is the greatest leader to not know anything going on around him. What a fool. Regarding FOIAs... I use them all the time, I submit 10 a week and have people submit another 40 a week on behalf of me. We go through stacks and stacks of information. Judeye should know that all information isn't available at the drop of a hat, nor without some sweat equity.

Obam just filed for info because he said he knew nothing about Benghazi, IRS targeting conservative groups , AP phone tapping, Fast & Furious,NSA bugging Merkel and how bad Healthcare.gov website was. The filed again for birth certificate and for info from Harvard to produce the academic transcripts he said are lost. "Most transparent administration ever" he promised !

Yes - but it takes forever to get a response and sometimes you get no response at all. Just ask The Observer about their FOIL request for money spent on the Bucky Phillips incident. They filed but got no response at all. Why? Because the state didn't want the public to know how much they wasted on the Bucky Phillips incident. State government is rotten to the core.

I have twice in this County.
First, I wanted to know the number of people on public assistance, including how many are 'employable'. This is included in a report that I got every month when working..so not asking for anything difficult. As a taxpayer you would think this information would be readily available for all to see and review....but NO...I had to file a FOIA and then wait until they would give the info. Some transparency in our county huh?
Second, regarding gas well at CC. I wanted to know the cost, who drilled it, and who authorized it. Finally was told to come to mayville where I could go through a "huge" file and see if what I asked was in there. This is where I saw contracts for $444,000 to drill, other contracts for surveys, getting rights, etc..total about half a million.
WHY do we need to file a FOIA to get basic information on how this County is using OUR money? Why so secretive? Hmmm maybe they have info they really do not want us to know..
