Patridge named Klamath County district attorney

 Posted: 3:50 PM April 05, 2013

Rob Patridge will be Klamath County's next district attorney, filling the vacancy left by Ed Caleb in January.

"Rob has the skills and experience to bring communities together and serve the people of Klamath County well," Gov. John Kitzhaber said. "He understands that the entire criminal justice system must work closely together to keep our communities safe and reduce victimization."

Patridge is a former Medford City Council member and state representative who worked as a deputy district attorney for three years in the 1990s. After that, he was general counsel for Pacific Retirement Services, parent company of the Rogue Valley Manor, and district director for Congressman Greg Walden. He ran an unsuccessful campaign for the Jackson County district attorney seat last year. Kitzhaber then appointed him to the Oregon Liquor Control Commission.

Caleb's mid-term retirement prompted to governor to appoint a successor to fill the remainder of the term.
