A Reader Alerted Me to Gonzalez's Firm's Lockdown of the Schools' Biz

The guy sent me the contract, but it's PDF. I am still trying to figure out how to change PDF into regular text. lee

Mr. Solis: Thank you for these data. And did the university advertise for a law firm, or what was the method used to hire this firm?

I would like to know how much the university paid this firm last year.

And what is the hourly rate that the firm's attorneys charge that the university's agreement with this firm mentions?

Is Mr. Gonzalez the main attorney that serves USF from this firm?

And is Mr. Gonzalez the principal attorney that serves the university from this firm? Finally, is that Mr. Gonzalez's signature at the bottom of the document under "shareholder"? I am unable to read it. Thank you. Lee Drury De Cesare

Dr. Visot:

I cannot find where to send a request for public information. Therefore, pray send this to the right person for a response to my request:

I would like to know if Tom Gonzalez is the attorney the university uses in its legal business with the workers and faculty, and if those are not areas of his employment at USF, is he at all employed by the university at all, in what area, and what was his salary last year?

Thank you.
