Deschutes County Commissioner Tammy Baney says Commissioners are trying to improve the acrimonious relationship with the District Attorneys Office. Last week County Commissioner Tony DeBone suggested cutting D.A. Patrick Flaherty's salary to help pay for expensive Grand Jury investigations. But now, Commissioner Baney says they hope the former Attorney General the County hired, Dave Frohnmayer will be able to resolve this: “We need the D.A.’s Office to be successful. It’s a part of the services we provide. And every day we spend internally fighting is taxpayer money that is wasted. I am hopeful, through Dave Frohnmayer, we will be able to reach some sort of resolution.” Commissioner Baney says Flaherty's pay cut proposal is off the table. She hopes the D.A.'s Office will realize any release of private information given out during a public records request was just a simple mistake, nothing more, not worthy of a Grand Jury investigation.
