John Albert Kitzhaber (b. March 5, 1947 in Colfax, Washington) is a medical educator and both a former Governor of Oregon and the current Governor. He is also a former practicing physician. He graduated from South Eugene High School in 1965, Dartmouth College in 1969, and Oregon Health & Science University with a medical degree in 1973. In September of 2009 Kitzhaber announced his candidacy in the 2010 Oregon Gubernatorial election[1].

Biography

Originally from Colfax, Washington, John Kitzhaber moved to Oregon when he was 11 and has lived in the state since then.

Beginning in 1974, Kitzhaber practiced in rural Roseburg, Oregon as an emergency physician. This led to his interest in health care policy and he ran for the state legislature in 1978. Following a single term in the lower House, John was elected to the first three Senate terms. During his legislative tenure, he was elected Senate President in 1985 and used his position to draft and pass the Oregon Health Plan.

Upon leaving the Senate, Kitzhaber ran for and was elected governor in 1994; in his first term he passed the Oregon Childrens' Plan. He went on to win re-election and served until 2003. Oregon's term limits law do not limit the total number of terms one person may serve but they do limit an individual to two consecutive terms.

Following the end of second term, Kitzhaber returned to the medical field and became involved with several non-profits and educational groups. Much of his work has been directed at increasing government funding of and involvement in medical care. He did not have the same success in lobbying for health care legislation he had known as Senate President and as Governor. In 2009, he announced he would seek a third term helming Oregon.

From 1993 to 2003, Kitzhaber was married to Sharon LaCroix. Their divorce was finalized shortly after the end of his second gubernatorial term. They have one son, Logan, who is now 13.
