New Deschutes County District Attorney Patrick Flaherty says he wants to put the "bumpy" transfer of administration behind him.   Five employees of that office were not retained as Flaherty assumed control from long time DA Mike Dugan. Flaherty says the overall tone in the office is improving: “We would like to have to deal with major distractions like this, I really want to get into the courtroom.” Flaherty admits there was some apprehension and maybe some fear by employees of the changes he was going to make.  He says a lot of that was fueled by a lack of knowledge and now that he's in the office, he can freely share with the staff how he wants to run the office of the District Attorney. He says that has quieted many of the concerns by employees. A new Deputy District Attorney started Wednesday. Katy Clayson was a Mountain View High School graduate and attended college at Johns Hopkins and the University of Denver Law School.
