    SALEM — Oregon’s 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 governor’s office to represent its interests in her role on the state’s public records advisory council. Willamette Week first reported McCall’s 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 governor’s office had...

    The Oregon Republican Party launched Monday a recall campaign against Democratic Gov.

    The contentious cap-and-trade bill that caused Republicans to flee the Senate for nine days was effectively pronounced dead on Saturday. But it may have a chance at resuscitation. During a press conference today, Gov. Kate Brown said she is prepared to use her executive powers and direction of state agencies to propel the policies behind the bill forward, over Republican objections. The 2019 legislative session ended Sunday, meaning executive action from Brown is the last chance the legislation has at progressing this year. Brown said of House Bill 2020: "Let me be very, very clear: I am not backing...

    Tensions boiled over in the Oregon Capitol this week as Republican state senators vanished in an effort to delay a vote on a climate change bill they oppose. On Thursday, Gov. Kate Brown, a Democrat, ordered the state police to find them and bring them back. It was only the latest chapter in a season of partisan division and frustration in the nation’s statehouses, where, for the first time in more than a century, all but one state legislature is dominated by a single party. In Oregon, where Democrats dominate both chambers, Republicans were unapologetic about their efforts to slow...

"The Senate Republicans have decided to abandon their duty to serve their constituents and walk out," Brown said in a statement.

    SALEM – Oregon is close to becoming the 15th state to signal that it will award its Electoral College votes to the presidential candidate who receives the most votes nationwide. On a 37-22 party line vote, the Democratic majority in the Oregon House sent Senate Bill 870 to the desk of Democratic Gov. Kate Brown, who has indicated her support. Instead, said Rep. Allisa Keny-Guyer, D-Portland, the compact would make Oregon more relevant during presidential campaigns. “The Republican presidential candidates write Oregon totally off, and the Democratic candidates take Oregon for granted,” she said. “So we are just relegated to...

    Oregon is the first state in the nation with statewide rent control. Gov. Kate Brown signed Senate Bill 608 into law Thursday. It takes effect immediately. Brown called the legislation a groundbreaking, bold start. “(This) will provide immediate relief to Oregonians struggling to keep up with rising rents and a tight rental market, but it doesn’t work on its own,” the governor said. “It’s going to take much more work to ensure that every Oregonian in our communities large and small have access to housing choices.”

    The major threat of the “blue wave” is that it might sweep over not only purple but even red districts and states, tossing control of the House back to the Democrats and threatening the Senate majority. But what about that “red wave” that the President keeps talking about? Here’s an interesting possibility I didn’t see coming. What if a partial red wave washed up on the shores of Oregon, flipping the governorship there to the Republicans? The current officeholder, Kate Brown, looked like a sure bet, particularly in the era of the Trump Resistance. But if that’s the case, why...

    Oregon Gov. Kate Brown positioned herself early on as a leader of the anti-Trump opposition, but the state’s never-ending panoply of protest activity has backfired on her re-election bid with voters suffering from resistance fatigue. Ms. Brown, who was expected to coast to victory in deep-blue Oregon, has found herself deadlocked in the latest polls with state Rep. Knute Buehler, an affable orthopedic surgeon whose moderate brand of Republicanism is attracting crossover voters. That includes Ben West, who supported Ms. Brown’s previous bid for office but was horrified by the mobs that shut down the Immigration and Custom Enforcement office...

In deep blue Oregon and super nova blue Rhode Island Democrats are thought to be just so loved by the people that the governor’s race in both states should be donkey party walkovers. But that’s just not happening. The two Democrat damsels in distress, Governor Kate Brown of Oregon and Governor Gina Raimondo of Rhode Island aren’t supposed to be home campaigning to save their jobs, they are supposed to be out organizing fund raisers to bring Venezuelan socialism to all of America not just their states; but they aren’t....

    The governor of Oregon says she'll resist any attempt by Donald Trump to deploy her state's National Guard detachment to protect America's southern border, and California's governor appears poised to follow suit. The president signed a proclamation on Wednesday that orders Defense Secretary James Mattis to 'request use of National Guard personnel to assist' with the Homeland Security Department's existing border patrol operations.

In a set of tweets Wednesday, Democratic Gov.
