Roberts to run for House District 45

MOORE — 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. There is too much polarization in our current legislature and I want to change that,” said Roberts, a Democrat.

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.

Ms. Roberts says that among her first priorities in the House will be to promote and protect 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, Ms. Roberts says she has a deep respect for our current military families and Veterans. She will work to serve the interests of all those who honorably served their country.

Ms. Roberts holds both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree from the University of Oklahoma. She taught Business Law and Management classes at Norman High School for ten years, and was then appointed to serve as the Cleveland County Election Board Secretary, where she earned National Certification as an Election Administrator. She successfully worked with Republicans, Democrats and Independents. She has a unique ability to work with all parties, to make sure the public interests are served. Barry, her husband of 41 years, is a local attorney and retired Air Force Colonel, and they have one daughter, Amanda. Paula is known for her many volunteer activities in the community and public service, including her service on the Boards of Directors of CASA, Full Circle Adult Day Care and Sooner Theater. She is a Xenia Fellow and she and her husband are long time members of the First Christian Church where Paula serves on the Outreach Committee.

“Norman is the best place to live in Oklahoma and we owe it to our children and grandchildren to leave Norman a better place for future generations, it’s time for someone to stand up for the people of Norman and stop the current wave of partisan politics,” said Roberts.
