10/21/2011: It’s slightly more than a year since she was appointed as UO’s first Public Records Officer by President Lariviere, in what was billed as an effort to improve trust and transparency between the UO administration and the UO community and public after the Bellotti/Grier debacle. From the ODE article:
“She was the unanimous choice of the selection committee, considering her experience and her knowledge of Oregon law,” Lariviere said. …
A regional search for the permanent director of the public records office began in mid-June, chaired by University Archivist Heather Briston and assisted by Assistant General Council Doug Park and Senior Director of Communications Phil Weiler, as well as the School of Journalism and Communication’s dean, Tim Gleason.
The search for a replacement will begin soon. Step one to getting it right this time will be keeping UO General Counsel Randy Geller, whom Denecke listed as a reference on her resume, and Associate GC Doug Park, who had ignored the Belotti contract requests from the RG, both out of the hiring process.
