Dear Mr. Bear:


On 01/14/2019, we received your public records request for the following records:


All emails, photos, videos, texts, and documents pertaining to the February 2007 agreement between Tesla Motors Inc and the State of New Mexico (and probably the City of Albuquerque) relating to the creation of a large automobile factory to be built in Albuquerque. Mayor Chavez and his staff were involved with this project, which lasted throughout 2007 and into 2008 before being cancelled, so there will probably be many documents and email throughout that time.

Persons involved: Gov Bill Richardson; Richard Homans (Economic Development); ABQ Mayor Martin J Chavez; Robin Dyche (Rio Real Estate Investment Opportunities LLC); Tesla CEO Martin Eberhard; Tesla Chairman Elon Musk; Ron Lloyd (Tesla employee) (Tesla emails would be to and from the domain)

Particularly interested in transcripts, documents, audio, or video of press conference held at Governor's office in Santa Fe on 2/19/2007 at which ABQ Mayor Chavez attended and participated, that announced the ABQ Tesla factory project to the public.


This communication will confirm our completion of your request. We have searched for responsive records and not been able to locate or identify any records. As a result, there are no responsive records related to your request that are maintained by my office. My office will now close your public records request.


Please let me know if you have any questions.
