In Portland they just would have left a nasty note on her car

Gov. Brown heard blunt criticism while riding in the Pendleton rodeo parade.

EO MEDIA GROUP - Gov. Kate Brown riding in the Pendleton Westward Ho! Parade.Gov. Kate Brown was the recipient of some "Pendleton hospitality" at last Friday's Westward Ho! parade in Pendleton.

The non-motorized parade is an annual mainstay of the festivities surrounding the celebrated Pendleton Round-Up, and features rodeo queens and other dignitaries from around the state.

Brown has been on horseback in the parade every year since 2015.

One member of the audience was evidently not pleased about the governor's appearance, though.

In a video recorded by the East Oregonian, a man can be heard yelling, "You suck!" right after the Oregon mounted governor's guard is announced.

The emcees took it in stride.

"Well, it takes all kinds," said one parade emcee.

"That's hospitality out in Pendleton," said the other.
