As I said last week, we are finishing a historic year and are ready to embark on another. Its a time to reflect on what has been and what is to come and to recharge.
We have both a lot of work and a lot of opportunity ahead, and I am proud of what we accomplished this past year and look forward to the next. Your work touches the lives of every Oregonian every day, and I want to thank you again for the work you do and for the professionalism you have exhibited throughout the year.
To everyone, I wish a very happy New Year and best wishes to you and your loved ones.
