Governor’s Office Helped With A Loan For Client of Hayes
Wednesday, October 15, 2014
Pronghorn Golf Course in Bend was about to be foreclosed on in November 2011, when the developer, Tom Hix, reached out to the Hayes’ and the governor’s office to delay a $1.8 million loan from the Oregon Department of Energy, according to the newspaper.
Kitzhaber's chief business liaison convinced the department to give Hix a 14-day extension on his loan. Hix ended up defaulting on the loan anyway, but sent an email thanking Hayes, Kitzhaber’s Chief of Staff and the liaison for their help.
Hayes and now Kitzhaber are currently embroiled in an ethics scandal as the November election approaches.
