Sure.  He runs a bunch of mailing lists for people who own and operate
ISPs, which I don't think is what you're looking for.

I doubt it.  The people I know in municipal governments (quite a few,
actually, since I'm on my local elected village board) don't strike me as
likely to sign up for advertising mailing lists, nor do any of the college
administrators I know.  I am the closest thing to a grant development
officer or MIS admin in my village, and I wouldn't know where to sign up
for such lists even if I wanted to, which I don't.

As others have suggested, if you want to contact them, use the phone or
postal mail, or advertise in magazines that such people read.  (I get a
couple of magazines for municipal officials in New York state, and they're
full of ads for computer services and software for governments.)

sleazy, but again, they're mostly in the Internet market and I'd be
surprised if they had anything related to either of the areas you want.
