Sen. Wyden Statement on Governor Kitzhaber’s Resignation

WASHINGTON - Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., issued the following statement after Gov. Kitzhaber announced he would resign: 

"Oregonians want government to focus on their needs rather than investigations and charges and counter-charges. Oregonians have a right to expect the highest ethical standards from their government, and today’s announcement by Governor Kitzhaber acknowledges that reality. In the days ahead, we will refocus with our new Governor Kate Brown on the goal all Oregonians share - making the best state in America even better.”
