Clawson Turns Down Opportunity To Lead OLCC

AP | June 24, 2013 2:17 p.m.

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Gov. John Kitzhaber’s choice to lead the Oregon Liquor Control Commission has withdrawn her name from consideration.

A Kitzhaber spokesman says Kendall Clawson decided to keep her current job as the governor’s executive appointments director.

The OLCC has been without a permanent director since the governor forced Steve Pharo into retirement last year.

Merle Lindsey is running the agency on an interim basis.

The five-member OLCC board will ultimately decide whether to hire Kitzhaber’s choice.
