  1. Advice to Becker crew, demanding videos that do not exist, bad idea. Some officials have power to get writs.

  2. It is necessary for CPRA requests to be able to be filed by concerned citizens anonymously.

    And regardless of whether or not they are anonymous or not there are far too many CPRA requests being filed in Santa Clara and taking up far too much staff time and taxpayer money to satisfy.

    • Gee, the district attorney staff want to know the name of their accuser..

      67 secret meetings and 5 million dollars was the cause.

      Ps san jose spotlight just won a lawsuit on 3990 private emails of liccardo

    • I do not understand what you are trying to say or the point you are trying to make with this comment.

  3. This is my point. A cpra should require a name. If a person has guts, they file their name to be willing to answer in public, why.

    A harrasser leaves no name.

    • Granted. There are some sincere and honest residents of Santa Clara who read this blog.

      Santaclara783 wants videos of Lisa Gillmor and Terry Harman.


      Mr Harman is a deputy d.a.

      Do you think emails about stadium agreement between Suds Jain and Rahul is more relevant to santa clarans than videos of lisa gillmor and terry harman?

  4. Further details has no identity

    Further checks show it is an email shrouded into 2 firewalls. To date, it made 35 cpra requests. The law allows for anonymous requests. Now we know certain gadflies and council watchers make dozens of cpras. But they always file their name to them.

    This sc783 has asked for records of photographs of lisa and kathy. Tapes of meetings between nikolai, rosen and even mr haugh

    Financial filings of mayor.

    This resuestor has even set up two websites with different emails to shroud his requests.

    • Requests seem targeted to certain people. Dead giveaway this is harassment. Haters just gonna’ hate.

    • Put perry Mason on the case!
