SALEM, Ore. — Four statewide officials who were elected in November will be sworn in Friday by Gov. John Kitzhaber at the Capitol.

Starting their terms Monday will be Secretary of State Kate Brown, State Treasurer Ted Wheeler, Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum and Labor Commissioner Brad Avakian.

The Statesman Journal reports this is the first time since 1947 that four statewide officials will take their oaths at the same ceremony.

State lawmakers will take their oaths Jan. 14 when the Legislature opens.
