Oregon’s aviation director resigned Monday, citing his desire to run for political office, according to a story in the Statesman-Journal.
According to the story, Dan Clem, who also serves on the Salem City Council, had been state aviation director since August 2007. Gov. Ted Kulongoski appointed him to the post after Clem had served for about six months as interim director.
He stepped down as the state agreed to pay more than $650,000 to a former state airports manager who claimed he was wrongly fired by Clem.
