(February 2024) Request for Rockingham County, NC Government: List of all department heads, directors, supervisors, elected officials, and their salaries. As of the present day.

Good afternoon Rebekah, Pat, (or Custodian(s) of these records), all others CCed,

Please reply promptly to the following public records request, which I’m making in accordance with NC Public Records Law. https://www.ncleg.net/enactedlegislation/statutes/html/bychapter/chapter_132.html

The type of basic salary data I’m requesting is simple to provide, is very commonly produced, and is widely considered a matter of public record as part of the public personnel file of employees and officials. Many NC entities fulfill requests like this via email in 1 week, and in many cases 1 day.

Please provide a list of ALL current Rockingham County, NC local government “department heads, directors, supervisors, elected officials” and their salaries, as of the present day (on the date the query is performed) Please include the following:

1) First / Last name
2) Position / Title / Department
3) Date of Hire
4) Salary (including hourly wage, hourly rate, or salary -- whichever payment structure is applicable to the employee)

Ideally, I’d like to receive the responsive records in an Excel or other machine-readable format. If any / all of this info is already publicly available online, please provide a link to where it can be accessed.

** I’m simply requesting an electronic copy of an electronic record, if one exists. I’m NOT asking for the opportunity to come in person to "inspect", nor to obtain a printed copy of, this electronic record. I’m requesting explicitly that any responsive info be provided to me via the electronic medium / electronic format (in which the copy of this record should already exist). If you are unable to fulfill any or all parts of this request, please specifically cite where a reason for denial is justified under NC Public Records Law. **

Please note that by submitting this request, I’m NOT agreeing to pay any potential fees or associated costs related to my request. If it isn’t possible to process the request without incurring fees, then please let me know the itemized potential cost and explanations for those charges upfront, and DO NOT proceed until I respond.

By Law I’m not required to provide a name or address to associate with a public records request, but in order to move things along I’d like to clarify that this request is being made by:

Sunshine Request
PO Box 17391
Asheville, NC 28816
