FOIA Request Letters

Under the Freedom of Information Act, The Sunshine Act and the state codes, you can send a request for the Oath of Office, Surety Bond and Insurance Policy for any elected or appointed official via certified mail.  You can also call them or walk straight into their offices.  

Every elected and appointed official is required by law to supply this material.  The trick is finding out who to ask for it.  Most states are organized in 4 zones:  (1) State (2) County (3) City (4) Town.  Many elected officials fall under a blanket bond that covers one of the zones.  Though this may very state to state, here is a list of officials by zone.

Be persistent!  If they are not providing this information to you, they are in direct violation of the Law!
