Column: City of Dallas is in violation, AGAIN!!!

No email confirmation, no certified letter with ignorant statements from the city attorney, nothing. Silence.

The following article is an editorialized opinion piece that reflects the views of the author only and not necessarily those of AllOnGeorgia.

AllOnGeorgia sent a revised ORR regarding the brewpub to the City Of Dallas. This revised ORR was prompted by a response from the city attorney, Glen Stinson, that stated: “The city does not have a brewpub application by Gary Leake”. I felt this specific wording was chosen because it was technically accurate. The application was likely made by whatever his company name is. I think Mr. Stinson felt a little embarrassed about his ignorance of the law so rather than advise his client to be forthcoming with the information they knew I was seeking, he chose to be obtuse.

The revised ORR was sent via email on Monday, April 2, 2018, at 7:28 AM. Below is the email followed by the ORR that was attached.

BrewPub emial-sent
Brew Pub Open Records Request - April 2, 2018

Now, the city is in violation of the law, again. This time because they have completely ignored my request. No email confirmation, no certified letter with ignorant statements from the city attorney, nothing. Silence.

Edit- Shortly after publishing this article I filed a complaint with the Attorney General’s office

    Thank you for exposing the underhanded and arrogance of the City of Dallas.

    So what are they covering up and/or hiding?
