Avel Gordley on her memoir "Remembering the Power of Words
Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod speak with former Oregon State Senator Avel Gordley about her new memoir "Remembering the Power of Words: The Life of an Oregon Activist, Legislator and Public Servant”.
Avel Louise Gordly was elected to the Oregon State Senate in 1996, after she had served three terms in the House of Representatives, running on both Democratic and Republican ballots in each election. Throughout her career, she always insisted that the legislative process belongs to the People, that it be open and transparent to constituents from every place in Oregon.
