Kate Brown for Governor
 

Governor Kate Brown is running for re-election as Oregon’s Governor. For working families, Kate has focused on supporting small businesses, worked successfully to raise the state’s minimum wage, ensure a fair work schedule, and guarantee paid sick leave. For our children, she has made record investments in education and instituted new teacher development resources. For seniors, Kate signed a law giving every Oregonian access to a professionally invested retirement account. Kate was the first governor in the country to take action to end the use of coal power, putting Oregon at the forefront of the clean energy movement.
