Paula Roberts, longtime Norman resident and the former Secretary of the Cleveland County Election Board, has announced that she is running for the Oklahoma House of Representatives, District 45.
“I am running for House District 45 because of what I see happening to our state. The political polarization in our current legislature is too destructive, Roberts said.
In making her announcement to run for House District 45, Ms. Roberts emphasized her belief that public service should always be the guiding principle for all elected officials in Oklahoma, and she pointed to her many years of exemplary performance at the Election Board.
Paula Roberts says that among her first priorities in the House will be to promote common and higher education in Oklahoma, bringing her training and experience as a classroom teacher to her work at the capitol. She also noted that, as a breast cancer survivor she is aware of the need for affordable health care, and the value of early detection and treatment of serious disease. Based on her many years of experience as a military spouse, Paula has a deep respect for our current military members and their families and our Veterans. She will work to serve the interests of all those who honorably served their country.
