Deschutes County Commissioners want to meet with incoming District Attorney Patrick Flaherty December 15th. It's a transition that has been marked by a lot of tension by such actions as the incoming DA telling the existing deputies DA's they will have to reapply for their jobs. This proposed meeting just happens to be the same day Commissioners are expected to vote on whether or not to accept a contract with the Deputy District Attorneys. Commissioner Dennis Luke: “We would like an opportunity to talk to him one on one. I have met with him personally, but that was before the contract was finished. And I think each of the Commissioners have met with him individually. We would like him to come and have an open discussion.” Deputy DA's have formed a union and have demanded a contract that includes a stipulation that they will only be fired "for cause". Commissioners will conduct a public comment period December 8th 10am on the proposed contract to give you a chance to see the details.   Commissioner Dennis Luke and others feel the public has a right to see what's in it.
