Четвертый срок…

Share this:

На недавних выборах, Губернатором Орегона в четвертый раз стал Китцхабер.

Его переизбрали даже несмотря на то, что предвыборная кампания далась ему нелегко. Все было омрачено скандалом с его невестой, которая пользовалась его положением.

В Америке это не особо приветствуется, правда, Китцхаберу это сошло с рук.

Впрочем, Орегон — штат демократический. А Китцхабер — демократ. Так что, у него больших проблем с переизбранием не было.

Даже несмотря на скандал.

Это все о нем…

PORTLAND, Ore. – Governor John Kitzhaber has been busy in recent days, crunching numbers for the state budget. It’s an important, if mundane, job for the governor of any state.

What’s not typical as Kitzhaber starts his unprecedented fourth term is the Oregon Government Ethics Commission investigation hanging over his head.

The commission is trying to determine if Kitzhaber’s fiancée Cylvia Hayes used her public position in his administration to help her private business.

Kitzhaber acknowledged in an interview on Friday afternoon that the re-election campaign was tough and that many voters – even Democrats – have reasons to question him.

“You’ve got to re-prove yourself to voters every single time you’re elected,” he said. “I think I’ve got some rebuilding to do and I’m very confident I can do it.”

Kitzhaber had turned down repeated interview requests from KGW News over the past several weeks. On Friday he offered up 15 minutes at a state office building in downtown Portland for an interview.

Kitzhaber said he’s anxious to see what the ethics commission says about what role Hayes can play in his office.
