Think Out Loud

Live: State of the State

Once a year, the governor stands up and makes proclamations about the year to come. This year, Governor John Kitzhaber will make his speech live from the Portland City Club — shortly after his first anniversary as governor. Think Out Loud will cover the event live from 12 p.m. until about 1 p.m. He’ll likely speak about jobs and the economy, education, working across party lines, and possibly even the death penalty.

Here’s a collection of photos live from the State of the State at the Governor Hotel:

What do you hope to hear from him? What do you think our state priorities should be in the year ahead?
