Orland Park, IL. (ECWd) -
After reading an email chain about how a determination was made that the Orland Park Public Library could no longer redact certain items from FOIA requests that pertained to complaints filed with the library, and the library's refusal to provide the documents, I decided to send the FOIA request myself so I could see what they had been hiding for two years.
In response, the OPPL FOIA Officer, Robin Wagner, sent me an accusatory letter claiming I was acting as a proxy for for Kevin DuJan, who had earlier in the year entered into a settlement with the library in a FOIA civil suit.

A couple of very offensive conclusions without a shred of evidence to back it up.
Whatever Wagner "feels" is simply her way of avoiding production of public records that the library had been hiding for two years already. While she did say they would produce the requested records, this accusatory letter makes me wonder what else they are hiding.
