As a taxpayer, how much information do you have the right to know about public employees? That is the topic of Thursday’s City Club of Central Oregon meeting in Bend. City Club spokesperson Stephanie Curtis says it should be a lively discussion. “If you're a public employee, what type of info is for public consumption? Is it your salary, your benefits, your performance?? And if an employee is placed on administrative leave, as a taxpayer do you have the right to know the details and if not, why?” The speakers are Deschutes County D.A. Patrick Flaherty, two newspaper journalists, and a first amendment attorney. The forum starts at 11:30 at St. Charles in Bend.
