SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Republican Congressman Greg Walden and Democratic former Gov. Barbara Roberts are slated to speak at a memorial next week for former Oregon Gov. Vic Atiyeh.
Speakers at the Sept. 3 memorial will also include Republican state Rep. Jackie Winters of Salem, Gerry Thompson, who was Atiyeh's chief of staff, and the former governor's two children.
Atiyeh died July 20 at the age of 91. He served two terms as governor beginning in 1979, and was the last Republican to hold the position.
The memorial will be held in the House of Representatives chamber at the state Capitol in Salem.
