January 12, 2011 -- Gov. Kitzhaber has appointed Scott Harra acting director of the Oregon Department of Consumer and Business Services. Harra replaces Cory Streisinger, who announced in October that she would be leaving the director post at the end of Gov. Kulongoski’s term.
Harra has served as the director of the Department of Administrative Services since 2008. Before that, he spent 18 years at the Department of Consumer and Business Services, first as a budget manager and then as administrator of the Fiscal and Business Services Division. He received training in public administration and budget analysis at the Department of Administrative Services from 1987 to 1989, during which he served as an assistant budget analyst in developing the Governor’s budget. Harra graduated cum laude in Arts/Economics and Political Science from Linfield College in 1986.
“I am pleased to return to DCBS and look forward to working with the department’s staff and stakeholders on key issues that affect Oregon consumers and businesses,” Harra said.
