SALEM, Ore. (AP) -- Four Democrats have taken the oath of office to continue in their jobs as Oregon elected officials.

Secretary of State Kate Brown, Treasurer Ted Wheeler and Labor Commissioner Brad Avakian were re-elected in November. Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum won her first election after being appointed to the office in June.

All four will serve four-year terms.

Democratic Gov. John Kitzhaber, whose office was not on the ballot last year, administered the oath on Friday.

State legislators will begin their terms on Jan. 14.
