In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

This information is in the public interest as this person is a public figure. He is running for Mayor of Pensacola, and has been Sheriff of Escambia County for 12 years. If there are investigations in his military history, he could be disqualified for running for public office.

Pursuant to the website

If, however, a requester is able to identify a legitimate public interest in disclosure of a requested address list, then this special protection under Exemption 2 is inapplicable. Cf. FBI Agents Ass'n v. FBl, 3 GDS ¶ 83,058, at 83,566-67 (D.D.C. 1983) (administrative manual sections dealing with code of conduct, discipline and grievance procedures and equal opportunity programs ordered disclosed as "matters of public concern and interest"). Although such a showing would be quite unusual in an employee address list case, it cannot be forgotten that "a reasonably low threshold should be maintained for determining when withheld administrative material relates to significant public interests."
