Deschutes County Commissioner Tammy Baney says the transition from one D.A. to another hasn't been a smooth one. Patrick Flaherty will be taking over for Mike Dugan in January. “This has been an unfortunate situation after 26 years, we have a changing of the guard at D.A.'s office. It has played itself out often in the media, which isn't the best thing. Internally things are working well. Patrick is going to do a great job serving. and he has a great relationship with the County.” Next Wednesday, D.A. Elect Patrick Flaherty is scheduled to meet with the County Commissioners to discuss the transition. Baney was on "Your town" During the KBND Morning News this morning.
