RE: Resolution No. R2014-80 - "Pierce County
councilman wants “In God
We Trust” displayed in council chambers"
I am a property owner and business owner in Pierce
County Washington (D-5),
and I object to CM McCune's Resolution to display a religious motto in
Council Chambers. I also object to the resolution being moved onto the
council, as I believe to display a Christian religious motto in the Council Chambers is *not* in
the best interest of
Pierce County's constituents as a whole.
I have heard that this motto is already on CM
McCune's Council office door,
and with the rights granted to me through the FOIA, I ask that my
correspondence here serve also as a request for public information
this embellishment (if the embellishment exists). With that, please be
provide a copy of this correspondence to the Public Records Officer.
My questions are:
1) Were any taxpayer dollars spent on the
embellishment and/or its
2) If so, how much was spent on the embellishment
and/or its installation?
3) Did this purchase and/or its
installation/display require approval from
anyone before it was made?
4) Have any members of the public, or any members
of any business, agency or
organization requested any information regarding the purchase and/or
the embellishment other than myself?
5) If so, please provide any/all such
correspondence and/or notes as part of
my public records request.
I would prefer all documents be provided to me
uploaded to a server where I can download them from.
Acknowledgement of this PRR, and any subsequent
correspondence should be
sent to me via my email address - firstname.lastname@example.org.
If the cost of fulfilling this request will exceed
$10.00, please let me
know in advance.
