Betty Roberts is being remembered as a pioneer in Oregon politics. Portland Representative Jefferson Smith has a lot to say about her accomplishments. “She was a wonderful woman; a pioneer, at the time leading the charge for greater equity in our civic, state and electoral leadership.” In 1968, Roberts was the only woman in the Oregon Senate co-sponsoring the original Bottle Bill. In the early 1970s, she ran for Governor, and later U.S. Senate. In 1982, she became the first woman appointed to the State Supreme Court. Roberts died at her Portland home Saturday, she was 88.
