Editor’s Note: Sunshine Request makes no claim as to the veracity of any statements or information contained in any of the requests, or public records, we receive.
Editor’s Note 12/06/19: The above request has been marked as “Completed.”
As it was written, this was not an actionable public records request we can send to a government entity. It was unclear what specific records info was being requested and was not a clear and specific request for public records, as it also included statements / assumptions about an individual that are not pertinent to a records request. Additionally, there was no City / County, State, or Government Entity specified.
If the sender would like to revise and resubmit the request, please do so via the request form on our homepage.
Tips for Writing a Request:
It is important that what you are requesting is specific and reasonable, and is an actionable records request. Please specify the exact records you’d like to receive, rather than any “possible” or “potential” info that could be searched. Remember that the larger your request, the more time it usually takes to fulfill. Specificity will often help reduce the amount of time needed to process the request.
It is important that a request has a clearly written and complete Subject and Message, and also specifies the Government Entity (or entities), City and/or County, and State to which the request should be sent. If applicable, please also include any responsive timelines for the info that should be requested – For example, “All emails sent from 11/11/19 – 12/11/19.”
This will help reduce the amount of time needed for our team to review and send the request, and will also reduce the likelihood that a government entity will need additional clarification in order to process the request.
