FOIA Friday: Financial disclosure limbo
The city still hasn't produced our requested financial disclosure records for Mayor Mike Duggan and other administration officials.
- The wait continues despite recent assurances that the records would be made available within days.
Why it matters: Duggan is a vocal supporter of Prop 1, a Nov. 8 ballot issue that would require state officials to disclose income sources and other financial information.
- The city already has its own financial disclosure rules set by Duggan in a 2015 executive order.
Yes, but: Our public records request for the city's financial disclosure records went unanswered for more than three months — well beyond the legal 15-day window.
- Last week, the city said it would provide the requested forms "in the next day or so."
What's next: The law department's review of the records is expected to be finished today, Duggan spokesperson John Roach tells Axios.
