UPDATE: Attorney General Orders PERS To Disclose PERS Starting Date

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.


About Dan Re

I am an attorney who has lived in Bend and practiced law since 1981. In educating myself about the Oregon Public Employees Retirement System (PERS), I was shocked at how the PERS laws were changed by the legislature, once legislators were allowed to join PERS in 1971, 26 years after PERS was first created. Those changes personally benefitted the legislators who made them at the direct financial expense of the people they were elected to represent. That is wrong and I intend to change it. In 2009, I started a non-profit 501(c)(4) corporation, In RE The People, Inc., for the purpose of informing concerned citizens of what happened regarding PERS and other issues of social and civic importance. I then created this blog to further that objective.
