Good evening Brittany, Deanna, Davin, (or Records Officer / Custodian(s) of these records),

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

** 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 already exists). 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 provide the electronic copy of all monthly credit card statements, and all receipts, for all employees reporting to the “Administration Building at 353 North Generals Blvd” – during the specific time period of 12/01/2023 through 01/31/2024. This should include but is not limited to: Madden, Gilbert, Farmer, Stevens, Rios, Leon, Hansen, Hallman, Henry, Fields and Watson.

Ideally, I’d like to receive the responsive records in a PDF or other machine-readable format.
