Deschutes County Commissioners have asked District Attorney Patrick Flaherty for a meeting to discuss the D.A. rehiring Sharon Sweet who was laid off last fall. Commissioner Alan Unger says Sweet's evaluations were glowing and the reasons for her position being eliminated were weak. "What the County Commissioners basically told the D.A. was that according to State labor law the reasons he gave for dismissing her and with her record, didn't sync up that they weren't good enough. That he had to continue her employment in his office. The reasons were inadequate." Unger says Flaherty indicated that he would like a meeting with the Commissioners, but at this time no date has been set for a meeting.
