October 2, 2020

The Honorable Scott Conger, Mayor

City Hall

101 East Main Street

Jackson, Tennessee 38301


Dear Mayor Conger:

The Tennessee Open Records Act (Tenn. CodeAnn. 10-7-503 et seq.) guarantees the public access to government records, which are defined as “any documents, no matter the physical form which are made or received pursuant to law or ordinance or in connection with the transaction of official business by any governmental agency.”

In accordance with this law, as a private citizen, I am requesting any and all documents relating to the implementation of any measures related to COVID-19.  This includes, but is not limited to, public and private communications between mayors, city council, county commission, public health department (Kim Tedford), and the Madison County COVID-19 Task Force.  Also requested are the minutes of any meetings in which the local response to COVID-19 was discussed.  Additionally, I am requesting information as to the involvement of the Madison County Health Board in the implementation and enforcement of any COVID policies as required by statute and a list of its current members and minutes of all meetings at which COVID-19 was discussed.  Finally, I am seeking a list of names of all those serving in an advisory capacity (e.g. Task Force members and any other quasi-legal entities advising either government or local health department officials), whether paid or unpaid.

By statute, you have 7 days to reply to this request.


Jimmy Hoppers
