Subject: Fwd: Public information request
“I find it interesting that no one in the courthouse have valid bond…. Now we are talking about real crimes! Members of the tcba…. I am bringing a wrecking ball to town . I will get remedy one way or another….
I also emailed each of the offices in the court And the court administrator responded with only the oath of office and no bonds. I will be in contact with the Secretary of State First thing as I’ve already made complaints about the new Philadelphia Secretary not responding to requests of public information.”
