Daniel Robertson will start in January
A new superintendent has been selected for the Eastern Oregon Youth Correctional Facility in Burns.
Daniel Robertson will take over the position on Jan. 4.
According to Joan Palmateer, Oregon Youth Authority Assistant Director of Facilities, “We had good candidates for the superintendent position in Burns, and the process of selection was a difficult one.”
Robertson is currently the Assistant Deputy Director of the juvenile justice system in Washington State. He has a long history in juvenile corrections in Washington and was an associate superintendent.
Said Palmateer, “He brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to Burns and this agency. He is well respected in Washington by his peers and supervisor. We are fortunate to have him coming on board.”
During the interim, Sid Thompson will continue to be at the Burns facility.
