Immediately after learning of the letter’s existence yesterday, The Gazette requested a copy.
Apparently others did, too, because city spokesman John Leavitt e-mailed a response to two others essentially denying the request.
The city’s reason?
The letter — get ready for this — isn’t “readily available.”
The city may also be invoking attorney-client privilege.
“We are aware of your recent requests about a letter from Ms. Culbreth-Graft to City Attorney Pat Kelly,” Leavitt said in the e-mail.
“The materials are not readily available and may be privileged in any case,” he added. ”As soon as any information is available, we will let you know.”
