Bob Tiernan asked Gov. Ted Kulongoski
"I am urging you remove Ms. Hayes from the Renewable Energy Working Group until the investigation is complete," Tiernan wrote.
"Given that Ms. Hayes has been a prominent figure in the development of your administration's renewable energy agenda, this action would remove the impression that favoritism, real or perceived, is in play while the investigation is being conducted. It would be prudent for the administration to apply a uniform standard while the 3E Strategies contract is in question.
I am hopeful that you and I will agree that it is in the best interest of all Oregonians to remove any potential double standard in this matter. This is not a partisan or political matter, but one of fairness. Thank you in advance for your interest in this important matter."
Kulongoski's spokewoman, Anna Richter Taylor, was not immediately available for comment
