Subject: public records request
To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to Oregon's public records laws I am requesting information on whether or not Oregon has issued a drivers license to LUGARDO CHAVEZ-CHAVEZ (D.O.B 10/04/1967)
I am not requesting personal information, just whether or not the individual was issued a license.
Daniel [My last name]
Mr. [My last name], I was forwarded your request for a response. The Oregon's Public Records Law is not applicable to you request. I responded to previous emails several months ago as a courtesy but am unable to do so anymore. You will need to request the record through the appropriate channel by mailing in a request with payment attached to Oregon DMV, Record Services Unit, 1905 Lana Avenue NE, Salem, OR 97314. Here is a link to our website that provides more information:
Annie P. Weathers
DMV Records Policy Unit
PH: (503) 945-8906
Miss Weathers was kind enough to respond to many emails previously but is now "unable" to. It had to have been pretty apparent as to what I was doing, I would email lists of names, all Hispanic, and inquire if they had been issued licenses.
With my current requests I had been hoping to compile a list of illegal aliens with DUII's and Failure to Perform the Duties of a Driver charges to demonstrate the patently false claims that giving illegal aliens drivers licenses somehow makes them more responsible drivers.
Rest assured the project will continue. And I am also interested in whether or not Miss Weathers had been directed not to correspond with me anymore.
