Hi Jackson County, NC Government (Records Officer),

I'd like to make a public records request for the following information under NC Public Records Law
Ref: https://www.ncleg.net/enactedlegislation/statutes/html/bychapter/chapter_132.html


Related to Jackson County, NC Public records requests policy / policies, and “denied” public record requests --

Please provide all emails and other forms of communication (emails, text, phone, etc.) sent to, sent from, and sent between, the County Manager, County Attorney, HR Director, and Chairman of the Jackson County Board of Commissioners (and any subset of that group) during the specific time period of January 01, 2021 through August 27, 2021.

Specifically, as relates to the following topics only:

If the records are ultimately too large to send via emailed file share, I'd ask that you please create a public Google Drive folder / link or some other file format to transfer the files electronically.
