Second FOIA filed for severance package info
C-I seeks post-employment monetary payments beyond normal benefits
Placeholder Image
The Chronicle-Independent has filed a second S.C. Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with Kershaw County concerning “severance packages” following the county’s insistence that it sufficiently answered the C-I’s first request by only releasing information about a $22,150 payment made to former Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office administrative assistant Samantha Connell. The county provided the Connell-related information on July 3, but Assistant County Attorney Tommy Morgan did not provide an answer, one way or the other, as to whether any other severance packages were paid to former county employees. The C-I thanked Morgan for Connell’s information, but stated that the county’s response was incomplete, and published a story to that effect on Friday.
