Governor Kate Brown Orders Flags Lowered to Half-Staff In Honor of State Representative Mitch Greenlick
(Salem, OR) — Governor Kate Brown has ordered all flags at Oregon public institutions to be flown at half-staff on Monday, May 18, when the family of Oregon State Representative Mitch Greenlick will honor his life and memory. Flags should be lowered to half-staff from sunrise to sunset Monday.
Governor Kate Brown issued the following statement:
“Representative Mitch Greenlick, of Portland, dedicated his career to fighting for Oregonians to have a better life. A fierce advocate for expanding health care, he championed initiatives that helped push our state forward, including extending the Oregon Health Plan for low-income and under-served communities. His tireless efforts around justice reform were critical to the passage of key legislation through the years to bring equal treatment under the law to all Oregonians. He was a professor, an educator, and a citizen legislator. Smart as a whip and with a heart of gold, he was a true Lion of the House. We will all greatly miss him. Dan and my hearts are with Harriet and his family as they mourn his passing.”
