Speaker's comms director heads to firm
Megen Ickler is leaving her job as spokeswoman for Oregon's Democratic House Speaker Tina Kotek at the Oregon Capitol in Salem after about six months on the job.
Ickler of Portland has accepted a position with Brink Communications.
The Portland-based communications firm specializes in urban planning, labor and social justice issues.
That's a good fit for Ickler's educational background. She has bachelor's degree in economics, planning, public policy and management from the University of Oregon.
Aaron Fiedler, communications director for House Democrats, will handle media calls for the Speaker's Office until a replacement is found.
