Patricia McCaig is a Democratic political professional in Oregon currently serving as Gov. John Kitzhaber's top advisor on the Columbia River Crossing. She has simultaneously worked as a communications consultant for the project to replace the Interstate Bridge.

Previously, McCaig served as a top aide to former Gov. Barbara Roberts and one term as a Metro councilor. She became the director of John Kitzhaber's gubernatorial campaign in August 2010.

According to The Oregonian, McCaig has also "worked on parks and zoo bonding measures and was appointed in 2001 (by Kitzhaber) to the state Board of Higher Education ... she has been a communications consultant for the controversial Columbia River Crossing project and is on the advisory council of The Brainerd Foundation."
