SALEM Oregons first-ever public records advocate is resigning from her post Oct. 11.
Ginger McCall, appointed by Gov. Kate Brown in early 2018 to boost transparency and openness in state and local government, said she was stepping down after what she called meaningful pressure from the governors office to represent its interests in her role on the states public records advisory council.
Willamette Week first reported McCalls resignation.
McCall sent two resignation letters: one to the advisory council, and a second to Brown.
In her letter to Brown, McCall wrote that she believed she and the governors office had conflicting visions of the public records advocates role. She felt the role should have a high degree of independence and serve the public interest, she wrote in her letter, but said the governors office didnt agree. She wrote that she was pressured to represent the interests of the governors office, even when those interests conflict with the will of the council and the mandate of the Office of the Public Records Advocate.
I have not only been pressured in this direction, but I have been told that I should represent these interests while not telling anyone that I am doing so, McCall wrote. I believe these actions constituted an abuse of authority on the part of the General Counsel, and are counter to the transparency and accountability mission that I was hired to advance.
McCall said she made multiple attempts to find a workable solution, but at this point I no longer believe these conflicting visions of my role can be reconciled.

Commie gov just being a commie.
There’s a Recall on right now for Kate Brown...gee...wonder why
I only posted this so that it was said again. It needs to be said over and over until the government concedes it is correct.
In other words she just realized she was lied to by the Democrats.
