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.

Editors Note 04/27/21: The above submission has been revised. There are certain types of requests that we will not process, and certain records that we will not publish on www.sunshinerequest.com. We reserve the right to reject or remove requests, based on our own policies and judgement.

In the case of the request above, we will not fulfill a portion of #2, which asked for all “phone contacts”. This is likely not a matter of public record, but, is also not something that we’ll publish on our site.

Due to the personal nature of this type of information, we recommend that the sender reach out directly to the appropriate entity for assistance with that portion of the request, should they wish to pursue it.


Before submitting a request, please take a moment to review our tips for How to write and make a successful request. If you have additional questions about our site or how to make requests, please check out our FAQs or Policies page.

Thank you for using www.sunshinerequest.com!
