The end of an election delivers great opportunity, and we hope newly elected governor Tina Kotek will be able to exploit the future prospects her selection by voters provides.

Kotek didn’t exactly reach office on a mandate. Her victory over opponent Christian Drazan was close — closer than usual in an Oregon governor’s race — and she can point to four or five counties whose voters helped her reach the state’s highest elected office.
