Charles Lee to Honor Service and Leadership of Backlund at Banquet

In honoring the service of the Republican public servant, Lee gives a glimpse of the bi-partisan Leadership he will bring to the Oregon Legislature.

State Representative candidate Charles Lee will recognize the public service career former State Representative Vic Backlund (R-Keizer) during a banquet on Thursday, August 24 at the Wittenberg Inn in Keizer.

“Former Representative Backlund has been an outstanding leader in our community and has been a tremendous asset to the Oregon Legislature with his leadership, character, and commitment to public service,” said Lee.

The event will feature a reflection on the Legislative career of Backlund and allow the public and invited guests an opportunity to pay tribute to him.

“I am honored to take part in this opportunity as I was honored to serve the community,” said Backlund. “This event showcases Charles’ ability to work in a manner of bi-partisanship and we need this type of leadership at the State Capitol.”

Backlund was a three-term Republican State Representative from 1999-2005 and represented Keizer, St. Paul, and Newberg. He was a teacher and coach for over 30 years at McNary High School before being elected State Representative.

The tribute dinner is open to the public. A VIP reception for special guests, table sponsors, and the Backlund family will be at 5 p.m. The dinner and program will begin at 7 p.m. Event information and tickets can be purchased online at www.charleslee2006.com.

Charles Starr is a homophobic extremist!

Charles Star is an anti-choice right-wing nut!

Charles Starr is an anti-environment lackey of big business with a ZERO rating from OLCV!

What exactly are we honoring? The fact that he called homosexuality a "mental illness"?

This is outrageous that the House Democrats would honor a man who spent his career attempting to destroy our states.
