“We need to be accountable for everything that we do as an organization. And I think that that’s one of the fun things that I bring to this business. Not only was I a foster parent and an adoptive parent, I worked in the private sector for many years.
And so being able to look at who needs to be accountable — I need to be accountable. And (Director of the Department of Human Services) Fariborz Pakseresht needs to be accountable.

-Marilyn Jones Oregon’s Director of Child Welfare
