Kate Brown Visits Ashland Rotary Club

Kate Brown Visits Ashland Rotary Club

Danna and I were excited to meet and hear Kate Brown, Secretary of State speak to day at the Ashland Rotary Club.  Kate stated that Forbes Magazine named Oregon as #12 in the US for being business friendly.  Oregon is also #3 in the country for number of patents filed.  Her emphasis was how she can help Oregon grow and put people back to work.  Danna and I are most excited about the Business Express Website, a one stop business portal with all of the tools one needs in order to start a new business or help grow and thrive an existing business.  They have won 2 national awards for this site.  They also have a “barrier button busting site” where you can call and speak to someone directly.  Kate Brown is so approachable and determined to help Oregon create a skilled workforce with many more students graduating high school.  They have identified 340000 people who do not have their GED or high school diploma.  GO KATE BROWN!
