Re: Freedom of Information Act Request
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act, The Sunshine Act 5 U.S.C. § 552b, and The Illinois Freedom of Information Act (5 ILCS 140). I request that a photo copy of the following documents be provided to me:
I am a private citizen seeking information concerning your public official surety bond, or the Errors & Omissions (E&O), and or the Duty of Care policy that you are required by the state of Illinois to obtain before swearing the oath of office.
(15 ILCS 405/3) (from Ch. 15, par. 203) Sec. 3. Oath and Bond: Before entering upon the duties of his or her office, the Comptroller shall take and subscribe to the oath or affirmation prescribed by Article XIII, Section 3 of the constitution and shall give bond payable to the People of the State of Illinois in the sum of $1,000,000 by inclusion in the blanket bond or bonds or self-insurance program provided for in Sections 14.1 and 14.2 of the Official Bond Act. The bond shall be conditioned (i) on the faithful discharge of the Comptroller’s duties, (ii) on the delivery of all papers, books, records, and other property appertaining to his or her office, whole, safe, and undefaced, to the successor in office, and (iii) on the Comptroller giving such additional bonds as may be legally required.
Public Official Surety Bond requests fall under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. § 552, The Sunshine Act 5 U.S.C. § 552b, The Illinois Freedom of Information Act (5 ILCS 140), and by law you are obligated to supply me with this information.
It is public knowledge in the State of Illinois that all school boards in the state and the superintendents are required to be bonded, carry an surety liability insurance policy, an Errors & Omissions, or a Duty of Care policy.
Thank you for your consideration of this request.
