Oregon DHS Director Erinn Kelley-Siel Stepping Down

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Erinn Kelley-Siel is leaving her job as director of the Oregon Department of Human Services as of July 24, 2015. Why did it take so long? Erinn Kelley-Siel joined the agency in 2008, serving as Director of Adult, Children, and Family Welfare Services. Before that, Kelley-Siel served as a policy adviser for Gov. Ted Kulongoski after being one of Kulongoski’s law clerks when he was a judge on the Oregon Supreme Court. Then Former Gov. John Kitzhaber appointed Kelley-Siel in 2011 as the Director of DHS. Why isn’t Kelley-Siel’s name mentioned in any of these lawsuits? Like most Department heads she resigned just before these allegations of mismanagement occured. She never answered one of my letters that I started writing her in 2008 concerning welfare fraud by her staff and the blatant disregard for the law her employees had in their positions. Crony Capitalism at it’s Best. I wonder what Department she is at now?
