Outgoing Secretary of State and UO Law alumna Jeanne P. Atkins will retire—for the second time—at the end of 2016 after a 35-year career in public service and women’s rights advocacy. In March of 2015 she was appointed to fill the remainder of the term of then-Secretary of State Kate Brown when Brown became Governor. Hear her story and what she has learned as Secretary of State in the past two years, as she oversaw more than 50 audits of state government; a project to restore the original Oregon Constitution; arguably the most contentious presidential election in U.S. history; and efforts to reform campaign finance laws in Oregon, in addition to serving on the State Land Board during difficult deliberations around the Elliott State Forest.
