Commissioners voted unanimously Wednesday to delay a decision on a proposed Deputy District Attorney contract until the new DA is in office. Incoming District Attorney Patrick Flaherty says approving a contract now that only allows firing for cause would tie his hands in selecting his new staff. “I'm grateful that they are going to give me the opportunity to sit down as a District Attorney and to discuss the contract that has been proposed and so on.” Flaherty tells 1110 KBND News that some voters have told him they want to see some "house cleaning" in the DA's Office. Flaherty told Commissioners that only four of the 18 deputy district attorneys have been told they will not be retained in the Flaherty Administration. Commissioner Alan Unger voted for the delay, but says he supports the contract because he doesn't want the county to face a charge of bargaining in bad faith. The contract will be discussed again with the new County Commission during their second business meeting in January.
