(September 2022) Request for Wake County, NC Government: Emails related to concerns about Raleigh/Wake Partnership to End and Prevent Homelessness. 11/01/2020 – 9/27/2022.

Hello Wake 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

Please provide all emails sent to Wake County employees Lorena McDowell and Vanessa Kopp in regards to concerns about the Raleigh/Wake Partnership to End and Prevent Homelessness. During the specific time period of 11/01/2020 through 09/27/2022.

It is my opinion that the emails may contain concerns about the treatment of ex-Partnership staff by Partnership leadership, mishandling of programs including HMIS, and/or false information disseminated from Partnership staff to the Wake County CoC, NC-507, membership.

If it’s possible, I would ideally like to receive the document in PDF format.

Please note: I am not requesting to come in person to inspect, nor to obtain printed copies of, electronic records. In accordance with NC Public Records Law, I’m requesting explicitly that all responsive records be provided via an electronic medium / format (in which the records should already exist), such as an email, file share, google drive folder, mailed flash drive if necessary, etc.
——————

I am 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

The request has been sent solely from the email address [email protected] . If anyone other than that email address contacts you to pursue a similar request, it did not come from me. Please do not commingle or treat that as an alteration or cancellation of my request – I intend to continue to pursue my request.

Please note that I cannot commit to sign any forms or pay any potential fees / associated costs related to any request. If it is not possible to process the request without incurring fees, then please let me know the itemized potential cost.

** 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. **

Thank you for your assistance!
