Gov's Office Sent Time Sheets But Not Remaining Requests After $2,090 Payment
Our Bad: We missed the link Governor Kate Brown's office sent us back on August 10 of their employee timesheets and it was mis reported in Forbes columnist Adam Andrzejewski's Oregonian OPED in Sunday's paper, so we offer our apologies to all. Having said that, OCWF has still not received the promised Governor's office calendars, credit card statements or payment vouchers after paying them $2,090 so far. In fact, it's been 60 days since we paid for them and haven't received any communication from the Gov's attorney Emily Matasar since Oct 14 when she said "It looks like I won’t get these to you by end of day today. Still hopeful you will have both the calendars and the credit card statements in the next few days. Thanks for your patience,Emily" in response to my email to her earlier that day asking if she was sending that information as she said she would in her Oct 7 email stating "I estimate I will have the credit card statements and calendars to you by the end of next week. The reimbursement vouchers may take longer, however. Thanks,Emily"
It seems the Governor's office read Adam's OPED and pushed back though they are really splitting hairs here. They really ought to be embarrassed that even though they had received our public records request 4 months ago and were paid for them 60 days ago, they still haven't sent us a pretty simple request for credit card statements, calendars of just two people and reimbursement vouchers.
Now that we have gotten their attention, perhaps we will recieve the promised public records. Stay tuned.
