Salem, OR—Governor Kate Brown today ordered all flags at Oregon public institutions to be flown at half-staff in honor and remembrance of former Vice President Walter Mondale. As a mark of respect for his life of service to our nation, flags will fly at half-staff until sunset on the day of internment.
“Vice President Walter Mondale was a true public servant," said Governor Brown. "Growing up in Minnesota, I remember hearing his speeches and seeing him in action. A leader who championed progressive values, he exemplified decency and lived a life of service to this nation. He will be missed."
