Gottfredson hides emails about UO board negotiations

4/1/2013: President Gottfredson’s public records office is trying to hide the details of the negotiations over the UO Board of Trustees from the public and the press. Dave Hubin sat on this public records request from the Register Guard for more than two weeks before even giving out an estimate. Now he is trying to use excessive fees to prevent the release of the documents:

The University of Oregon has received your public records request for “all records generated or received by University of Oregon employee Betsy Boyd and UO President Gottfredson regarding proposed or draft legislation that would create a University of Oregon governing board or otherwise change the relationship between the UO and state government.The time period for the request is Nov. 1, 2012 to the present”, on 03/20/2013, attached. The office has at least some documents responsive to your request.  By this email, the office is providing you with an estimate to respond to your requests.

The office estimates the actual cost of responding to your request to be $ 1065.29. The University has agreed to reduce this fee by 40%. Accordingly, upon receipt of a check made payable to the University of Oregon in the amount of $639.18, the office will proceed to locate, copy, and provide the records you have requested that are not exempt from disclosure.  Your check may be sent to the attention of Office of Public Records, 6207 University of Oregon, Eugene, OR 97403-6207.

Wouldn’t want the public to know anything about the negotiations to set up a board for a public university.
