Asking Questions About The City's Chief Administrative Officer

Pete Springer/OPB

The City of Portland Auditor, LaVonne Griffin-Valade, wants more transparency in the handling of the alleged financial indiscretion of Chief Administrative Officer, Jack Graham. Over the weekend, The Oregonian reported that Graham had attempted to misdirect city funds last year, and that an investigation showed that Mayor Charlie Hales knew about the investigation when he took office. As reported in The Oregonian, Hales said as late as this April that he was satisfied with Graham’s performance. 

We’ll talk with Oregonian reporter, Brad Schmidt, about his investigative piece and we’ll get Mayor Hales’ response to the story. 

What questions do you have about the actions of Jack Graham or the City of Portland’s response?
