On August 23, 2010, I requested PERS to disclose the date that Representative Judy Stiegler joined PERS. Judy was elected to the legislature in November, 2008 and assumed office on January 12, 2009. PERS declined to provide that information, claiming that it was exempt from disclosure. I then filed a petition with the Oregon Attorney General requesting that it order PERS to disclose that information.
On September 27, 2010, the Attorney General granted my request and ordered PERS to disclose the date that Representative Stiegler joined PERS. As soon as I receive that information, I will report it.
