Governor orders flags to half-staff for Paulus service


Gov. Kate Brown on Thursday ordered all flags at Oregon public institutions to be flown at half-staff in honor of former Oregon Secretary of State Norma Paulus, who died on Feb. 28. Flags should be lowered to half-staff from sunrise to sunset on Saturday, April 27, the date of Paulus’ memorial service.

“Norma Paulus was a pioneer who shattered glass ceilings in Oregon. As the first woman elected to statewide office in Oregon, she paved the way for so many of us to one day run for public office,” Brown said. “Dan and I celebrate her life and legacy, and wish her family comfort during this time.”
