I have the receipt ($259.95) from my payment to obtain the transcripts of the IERB Feb 28 meeting in which I was not allowed to present evidence before you dismissed multiple complaints.

When I sent my open records request to the IERB for those transcripts of the public meeting, James Balli informed me that I must contact the private transcription company and pay for the transcripts. That company told me there would be a delay until the board authorized the release of the transcripts to me.

1) Please cite and send me a copy of the specific legal authority exempting the requested transcripts/records from disclosure as is required by OCGA 50-18-71.

2) Also, send me a dated copy of any letter/email sent to me announcing a change in agenda for yesterday’s (May 15, 2018) hearing from the agenda I paste below from the last notice I received from the IERB.
