SALEM, Ore. (AP) - Gov. Kate Brown is adding several staffers to her administration.

Brown announced Thursday that she’s hired Kaiser Permanente lobbyist Jeremy Vandehey to be her health policy adviser. He replaces Sean Kolmer, who was a holdover from former Gov. John Kitzhaber’s administration and took a job with a health care consulting firm.

Brown also hired Adrian Smith for the new position of child dependency task force administrator. Smith was previously a government affairs lawyer for the National Indian Child Welfare Association.

The Democratic governor also announced 48 nominees to boards and commissions. They’re subject to Senate confirmation later this month.
