In Salem, there are plans to honor former Governor Tom McCall with a statue in Riverfront Park. From the AP:
The statue will depict McCall wearing waders and stepping out of the North Umpqua River, holding a steelhead in one hand and a rod in the other.
Following McCall's wishes, it is to be modeled after a photo taken by Dan Callaghan of Salem that's on the cover of "Tom McCall: Maverick, an autobiography with Steve Neal." ...
The project is expected to cost about $100,000. The group has about $23,000 and will start raising more money soon.
A number of folks have wanted a statue to be placed in Portland's Tom McCall Waterfront Park. However:
"I'm very pleased that (McCall is) going to be honored with a statue and that it's in Salem," said Audrey McCall, who lives in Portland. "The work that he accomplished was in Salem. We lived there. We were part of that community when that was all taking place. It seems very fitting."
