Hello Cena--

Thanks so much for your prompt answer to my request. However, I was hoping for more information on this case. Would you be able to redact personal information from the records I'm looking for so that you remain in compliance with the state’s public records and I could find out the information I'm looking for? Please let me know when you might be able to do so by. Thank you!
