The Right Choice for Secretary of State

"I know all the candidates in this race. I've been Oregon's Secretary of State. Kate Brown is my strong choice. Her integrity, dedication and experience make her the outstanding leader to be Oregon's next Secretary of State."

Governor Barbara Roberts

Fair Elections, Every Vote Counted

I will continue shining a light on the influence of money in campaigns, as I did by creating campaign reporting to "follow the money," so voters see where campaigns get their money and where they spend it. Having won my first race by only 7 votes, I know that every vote matters.

Every Tax Dollar Spent Efficiently and Effectively

"Senator Brown is a champion for public education. As Secretary of State she will find creative ways to provide services while keeping an eye on the public's bottom-line, so we can put more dollars into our priorities, like education and health care. That's one reason educators across Oregon are supporting her."

Rebecca Levison, Portland Association of Teachers

Progress for all of Oregon

When I was elected to the Senate, Republicans outnumbered Democrats two-to-one. To move Oregon forward, the voices of Democrats had to be heard. I got to work, rolled up my sleeves, and delivered. After years of dreaming, Oregonians' priorities have become law - more funding for schools, civil rights, access to health care, and an expanded Bottle Bill. As the first woman Senate Majority Leader, I helped make the difference. That's the kind of leader I will be as your Secretary of State.
