"The gospel according to Myers"
Clay Myers has them entranced. At 75, his hair dissolved by chemotherapy, Myers speaks ...Republican nonconformists, including Gov. Tom McCall, U.S. Sen. Mark Hatfield and Myers, ran the show.
Myers who served successively as secretary of state and treasurer for nearly 20 years from the late 1960s to the early '80s serves up a message of political compromise and inclusion.
.... The political side of Myers developed early, beginning as a youngster in Tillamook where he pondered the reasoning behind the town's "sunset law," which required African Americans, Native Americans and other minorities to be indoors by nightfall. It didn't make sense but it was the accepted way of life, he says. His parents never questioned it.
