Tonkon Torp Remembers Senator Hatfield

August 9, 2011

Tonkon Torp extends its condolences to the family of Senator Mark O. Hatfield.  One of Oregon's most respected statesmen in every sense of the word, Senator Hatfield demonstrated intelligent, principled thinking on a myriad of issues affecting Oregonians, the nation and the world.  His leadership skills brought people together around shared values regardless of political party.  Those skills appear very much in need in today's environment of uncertainty and discord. 


Tonkon Torp was privileged to work and share office space with Senator Hatfield for several years following his retirement from the Senate.  We, and Oregon, have lost a man of great character and accomplishment.
