Oregon Secretary of State Dennis Richardson died Tuesday night following his battle with cancer.
The news was announced Wednesday morning. The 69-year-old secretary of state was surrounded by friends and family at the time of his passing.
Congresswoman Suzanna Bonamici said, “I am sad to hear that Oregon Secretary of State Dennis Richardson passed away last night following his brave battle with cancer. I had the honor of working with Sec. Richardson when we served together in the Oregon State Legislature, and I always valued his contributions and commitment. He was a great public servant who dedicated much of his life to Oregon and our country. We often spoke of his family, and my thoughts are with them and his friends at this difficult time.”
