In light of the announcement by the St Paul Strong group about a news conference, this message about the city of St. Paul deleting about 40 percent of its email archive and curtailing backups is disturbing example of why a community driven St. Paul is needed.

Although I do not keep all of my personal emails, I actually have fairly complete personal email archive that dates back more than 15 years.  Some of the emails hold memories and others hold lessons for both myself and associates.

Considering how cheap storage space is, there should be no reason to not keep all of the emails with citizens.  Just like the proposed/planned cameras on our officers, these emails could only help with our government's accountability.
