Manning brings over 30 years of experience in journalism to the Department of Justice
Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum today announced that long-time reporter Jeff Manning will serve as Public Information Officer (PIO) for the Oregon Department of Justice.
"I am delighted that Jeff has chosen to join us at DOJ," said Attorney General Rosenblum. "Jeff's reputation as a thoughtful and careful journalist will serve the Department and the public well."
Manning graduated from the University of Washington and brings with him to the Department of Justice 31 years of experience working at Oregon newspapers. He spent the past 18 of those years at The Oregonian, where he most recently served as a senior reporter concentrating on investigative projects.
Manning will assume his role at the Attorney General's Office on August 27 and begin working with Attorney General Rosenblum and the eight Divisions of the Department to promote DOJ and the important work it does for the citizens of Oregon. As PIO, Manning will play a key role in advising the Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General on new strategies to address DOJ's relationship with the media and the public at large.
