California Public Records Request: Set Six

Yesterday, I sent another public records request via certified mail to Santa Monica College in care of President Chui L. Tsang. This will be the sixth request for public records for SMC and its satellite campus, the Academy of Entertainment and Technology (AET). You can view the request HERE. To date, SMC has failed to disclose many records under the law. Robert Sammis, Vice-President of Planning and Development, has found every excuse and delaying tactic possible to stonewall our access to vital public records. We had previously filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court pertaining to the first two requests. If SMC fails to comply within the mandated time frame under the California Government Code, another lawsuit may be necessary to enforce our rights.

To view any of our previous requests for public records or our compliance demand letter, please refer to our AET database under the legal section. SMC student Jeff Higley has also filed a public records request under the California Public Records Act to Deyna Hearn, Assistant Dean of Student Life. His request can be viewed HERE. Robert Sammis is also handling this request and Mr. Higley is eager to see if he complies with the law.
