Oregon Gov. Kate Brown announced Monday that the state’s chief education officer, Nancy Golden, is retiring. Republicans have already expressed concern about the governor’s interim appointee to the position.

Editor’s note: In this conversation, Rob Manning made an incorrect statement about interim chief education officer Lindsey Capps’ resume. Before joining the Governor’s office in March, Capps worked under the Chief Education Officer for close to a year. Before that, Capps worked for the Oregon Education Association.
