Energized by Kate Brown as our new governor

I’m incredibly optimistic and energized by a Kate Brown governorship, despite the circumstances leading up to it.

At her swearing in, she struck a conciliatory and healing tone, promising to restore the public’s faith in our state government. While it remains to be seen in what direction she decides to drive her gubernatorial priorities, I think anyone who voted for her as secretary of state in 2012 will be happy they did so.

Once the circus passes through town and things return to normal in Salem, I’m eager to see the legislative process back on track with Kate Brown at the vanguard.
