Want public records? Forget Hubin. Ask Greg Rikhoff, and cc Doug Park.

Links to legal and consulting expenditures and the Hershner Hunter contract below – but not Amanda Walkup’s charge for investigating LibraryGate, which Doug Park apparently didn’t put in writing.

Dave Hubin’s public records office is the black hole of transparency and trust. They sat on this 5 minute request for 2 weeks. If you want action, email Coltrane’s Chief of Staff Greg Rikhoff (and cc his Interim General Counsel Doug Park, who knows he’s already on thin ice with public records.)

      Right, and again, who needs those stinkin’ graduate students …

    “UO is paying out roughly $500K a month for outside lawyers and consultants”

    The ~$47K in OASU expenditures each month shouldn’t be counted in that figure because they go to legal help for students and student organizations.
