Dear Public Disclosure Officer:
Pursuant to the state open records law, Wash. Rev. Code Secs. 42.56.001 to 42.56.904 I request access to and an electronic copy of:
-all records, reports, correspondence and emails regarding A Regional Coalition for Housing, ARCH, since October 1, 2018.
-all records, reports, correspondence and emails regarding KING 5 and/or reporter Chris Ingalls, since October 1, 2018.
The statute requires public agencies to "provide for the fullest assistance to inquirers and the most timely possible action on requests for information." (RCW 42.56.100) The statute also provides that exemptions to disclosure generally are discretionary, and that the agency cannot be held liable for good-faith release of public records. (RCW 42.56.060)
Accordingly, as a journalist working on a deadline, I request to receive these records as soon as possible and as they become available, rather than waiting for the entire request to be ready for inspection or disclosure. Please notify me by telephone (206-448-3980)or email (cingalls@KING5.com) when records are available.
As provided by the open records law, I will expect your response within five (5) business days. Please contact me if you have any questions or need clarification.
Thank you for your assistance.
