PORTLAND, Ore. — Oregon Governor Kate Brown gave a speech to the City Club of Portland on Friday afternoon in Portland.
The governor outlined her goals for this year and her first full term. The speech and a question and answer session were part of the City Club of Portland's weekly Friday Forum.
Brown, a Democrat, was re-elected as governor in November. She previously took over for resigned Democratic Governor John Kitzahber in 2015 and won a special election in 2016 to finish his term. She was the first openly bisexual governor elected in the United States.
During her inaugural address last month, Brown unveiled some of her top priorities including education, voter rights, campaign finance reform, health care, affordable and accessible housing, climate change, and clean energy, among others.
