Gov. Brown Special Guest at DPO Wayne Morse Gala in April




We’re deeply honored to announce that Governor Kate Brown will be our special guest at the 6th Annual Wayne Morse Gala on April 17th, 2015. She joins keynote speaker U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar, who the Washington Post called a “rising star” and “the funniest new member of Congress.”

This is going to be an outstanding event headlined by two powerful women who have worked tirelessly to serve the public and achieved the highest results. Get tickets today — $125.

Governor Brown has been a leader in increasing government transparency and accountability, has identified millions of dollars in savings for Oregon taxpayers, and spearheaded legislation that the Oregonian called the “state’s most sweeping package of ethics reforms in 34 years.” She has been a champion for Oregon’s working families and small businesses for over 20 years.

Senator Klobuchar, who comes from a background of miners, newspapermen, and schoolteachers in Minnesota, has made a name for herself on legislation to provide middle-class tax relief and paycheck fairness for women. Working Mother Magazine named her “Best in Congress” in 2008.
