Gov. Peter Shumlin’s administration released 5,500 pages of emails from five top aides shortly after 5 p.m. on Friday. The emails were scheduled to be deleted earlier this month.
The emails are from five top staffers who left in 2013 or earlier: They include Bill Lofy, Shumlin’s former chief of staff; and Alex MacLean, who served as secretary of civil and military affairs before she was hired as a communications, investor relations and project manager at Jay Peak Resort.
Lofy’s emails total 866 pages, all from late 2012 and early 2013. In them, staff talk about press releases, scheduling, Shumlin’s speeches, committee assignments. Lofy also negotiates with the state to buy his government-issued iPad from the state for $400 when he leaves state government.
MacLean’s are 1,944 pages, largely communicaitons about press releases and the National Governor’s Association. In one email, she talks to Tom Torti from the Lake Champlain Regional Chamber of Commerce for agreeing to the governor’s request to accompany Torti on a trip to Cuba.
