The Deschutes County Commissioners voted to wait on approving a union contract until after DA-Elect Patrick Flaherty takes office. Flaherty will take over the Department on January 3rd, but Commissioners won't vote on possibly approving a union contract until January 12th. Commissioner Dennis Luke says the acrimony occurring at the DA’s Office during the changing of the guard has been unfortunate. “I think it became very personal. This is the County's business and any time you let things get personal, it effects how you handle things. I think both the current DA and the incoming DA let this get a little personal.” Luke says since there won't be a contract in place when Flaherty takes over, DA's are at-will employees based on the employment agreement they signed when they took the job. Flaherty has said he plans to keep all but four of the attorneys.
