Kotek wants “First Spouse” office to employ wife

By Taxpayers Association of Oregon


According to the Willamette Week, Oregon Governor wants her first lady Aimee Kotek Wilson to have an official role and office in some form of “First Spouse” office.

This comes as personal tensions, involving the First Spouse, were part of the mews stories surrounding 3 recent high level steps downs by top staff.  Oregon Governor Tina Kotek’s top staffer, Chief of staff Andrea Cooper is leaving as well as special adviser Abby Tibbs and deputy chief of staff Lindsey O’Brien.  Insider sources say it was office conflicts.  See more here.

The First Spouse already has an office within the Governor’s office just like Kitahzber significant other who caused a scandal at the time.  The Taxpayers Association did a cartoon on Kitzhaber’s staff scandal at the time:


Some of this conflict may explain why Kotek has seemed to be absent during the 2024 Legislative Session.
