James Davis Appointed to Governor’s Commission

Dr. James Davis, human sciences faculty, has been appointed to the Governor's Commission on Senior Services.

The commission has been the state government advisory body on issues affecting seniors since the 1970s. The commission advises the governor and the Department of Human Services on local, state and federal issues, services and programs for seniors and people with disabilities. Members are appointed by the governor and include elder leaders, advocates, educators, policy-makers and service providers. Davis will serve a three-year term until 2015 and at that time can be considered for an additional term.

Davis has a long history with the Commission on Senior Services. He served on the commission under Governor Goldschmidt in the late 80s, and he staffed and coordinated the Mental Health and Addictions Committee. He has also worked closely with the commission on many statewide senior projects, including helping lead the Oregon delegations to the 1995 and 2005 White House Conferences on Aging in the nation's capital.
