RE: Somervell County Hospital District Training Certificates

So I got MORE of my Public Information Request a week after the first part

28 October 2015 at 5:52:40 PM

I did a public information request of Somervell County Hospital District aka Glen Rose Medical Center on Oct 9, 2015. I received back a reply on October 19, 2015 from Ray Reynolds who wrote "Attached are the certificates I have in file." Posted about it here on October 23, 2015. 

So, I assumed that this was the end of it, that Mr Reynolds had sent everything that pertained to the required training certificates. After all, he didn't say, "MORE COMING". I wrote about this on the morning of October 23. 

On October 26, 2015 at 9:05 am I got more certificates. 


John Parker  Oct 2014

Eugene Brode Oct 25 2015

and 2 from Mina Douglas for both PIA and TOMA. Not sure who that is, but maybe she works for Reynolds.

I wondered why the fool these weren't included in the request I did before. After all, I would have assumed my request was fulfilled. In other words, if there is no explanation that there is more coming, then how can you KNOW you got it ALL? 

I called up John Parker to ask him how it was that his other certificate showed up in the 2nd email and not the first. He said Ray Reynolds had called him a few days before that to ask about his cerificate and he faxed it to him. Since Eugene Brode completed TOMA (don't see Public Information Act at all for Eugene) on Sunday, October 25, 2015, it looks to me that after I posted about all the missing required certs, Reynolds called up to ask others to pony them up. IF that's actually the case, then it STILL means that 

  • Brett Nabors
  • Karen Burroughs
  • Eugene Brode

are STILL out of required compliance with testing for the Texas Public Information Act. Their certificates are supposed to be ON FILE 

Q: How will public officials demonstrate that they have complied with the open government training requirements?

A: The entity providing the training is required to give the participant a certificate of course completion. The public official or public information coordinator is then required to keep the certificate on file with their governmental body and make it available for public inspection upon request.

So is Ray Reynolds now going to ensure that Brett Nabors, Karen Burroughs and Eugene Brode turn in their certificates to have them on file for public inspection. I assume since he called up John Parker that he must have called them too. I don't actually understand how we can be sure they really understand the rules around public information since there is zip proof they even did the training.
