State officials' offices sparkle with holiday cheer

The Secretary of State's Office went all out, while former Gov. Tom McCall got a Santa hat in the Governor's Office lobby.

OREGON CAPITOL INSIDER - Oregon Secretary of State Dennis Richardson's Office lobbySALEM — The decorations and entertainment in the Oregon Capitol rotunda are a major attraction during the holidays.

Lesser known are the festooned corner offices of some of the state's elected officials.

The bedecked, twinkling lobby of Oregon Secretary of State Dennis Richardson's office may be the hardest to miss when entering the east entrance of the Capitol.

"That's our goal to let people know we're here and they're welcome," said Doris Halpin-Reyes, Richardson's executive assistant.

OREGON CAPITOL INSIDER - Doris Halpin-Reyes, executive assistant in the Oregon Secretary of State's OfficeHalpin-Reyes has revived themes from Christmases past in her home and repurposed the decorations for the lobby. Sections of the office feature ceramic houses, snowmen and bows, which belong to Halpin-Reyes and would otherwise be languishing in her garage.

Each window in the lobby is wrapped with different textile paper and ribbons and named for one of the Secretary of State's Office divisions: Archives, Information Services, Elections and Business Services.

It took her and special assistant Marc Miller about a week to decorate the lobby, she said.

Gov. Kate Brown's lobby on the second floor of the Capitol is more nonchalant. It has a traditional Christmas tree in the ceremonial office, and sparse, but strategic, holiday touches in the public lobby.

State Treasurer 's office decorations were more reserved than usual as his staff prepares for a temporary move out of the Capitol for renovations.
