POL Government Elected Officials Commissioner Nick Fish
Oregonians honor the life of Vic Atiyeh, 1923-2014 - September 3, 2014

 

This morning, Nick was proud to join the Atiyeh family, elected officials, and hundreds of Oregonians at a public memorial for former Governor Vic Atiyeh.

 

Governor Atiyeh passed away in July at the age of 91.  He served as Governor for two terms (1978-1986), leading Oregonians through a difficult recession in the early 1980s. His passion, humility and statesmanship helped shape the Oregon we all love today.

 

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Atiyeh family.
