Вспоминая уходящего Губернатора…

И то, что он сделал для Орегона…

SALEM, Ore. — Although John Kitzhaber is currently embroiled in ethics and criminal investigations surrounding his work with his fiancee, Cylvia Hayes, he leaves behind a lasting legacy that includes decades of public service and contributions that transformed the state.

Prior to becoming governor in 1994, Kitzhaber paid his political dues in the house and senate before being elected to the states highest office.

Following his work as an emergency room doctor, Kitzhaber was elected to the Oregon House in 1978, then the Oregon Senate in 1980. He served three terms in the senate, eventually becoming Senate President.
His first term as governor was in 1994. He was since elected in 1998, 2010 and 2014.

Kitzhaber was one of the first advocates for government-run health care. He pushed the plan on the national stage — including an appearance on the Today Show in 1988.
He also pushed for health care reform, joining President Clinton at the White House in 1994, just after he announced he was running for governor.
Kitzhaber was chief author of the state’s government-funded health care plan, known as the Oregon Health Plan. It brought health care to the poor and became a model for other states, which he mentioned in his resignation speech.

“We have transformed our health care system, improving access and quality while lowering costs through our new coordinated care organizations, ” said Kitzhaber. “Tonight over 95 percent of Oregonians will go to bed knowing they have health insurance coverage.”

Recently, the governor took serious heat for the botched Cover Oregon website.

Kitzhaber also made headlines when he issued a reprieve for a convicted murderer scheduled to die by lethal injection, saying he wouldn’t allow the death penalty to be carried out in the state while he was governor.

Governor Kitzhaber focused on education, introducing plans to help at-risk children and their families.

Kitzhaber has been a vocal defender of the environment. Perhaps his biggest environmental achievement was the Oregon plan for salmon and watersheds, which is helping to restore threatened salmon species.

Kitzhaber was known as much for the bills he did not pass as the ones he did.

As governor, Kitzhaber was never afraid to veto bills. During his first two terms, he got the nickname “Dr. No” for his record-setting 202 vetoes. At the end of his second term, he said that partisanship was making the state ungovernable.
