An informed panel of journalists, public officials and first amendment lawyers tackled some tough questions about government transparency during this week's City Club meeting.  Deschutes County District Attorney Patrick Flaherty was on the panel. He’s had a very public battle with the local newspaper over releasing information.  Flaherty says public officials eventually answer to the people:  “You should be pretty trusting of the people you elect.  You should trust they'll represent your interests.  I’m the representative for the State of Oregon in Deschutes County for criminal and juvenile matters.  When public records request related to that function, it's important I’ll do the right thing to release the records or not.”  Also on the panel were reporters from the Source Weekly and the Bend Bulletin.
