A county resident speaks out:

I submitted the following to the County Council (Re: http://tinyurl.com/qj2qc6f)

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 the Council Chambers. I also object to the resolution being moved onto the full 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 relating to this embellishment (if the embellishment exists). With that, please be sure to 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 installation?

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 display of 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 digitally--preferably 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 - xxxxxxxxxxx@gmail.com.

If the cost of fulfilling this request will exceed $10.00, please let me know in advance.

Respectfully,

Stacy Emerson
Pierce County, Washington
