Oregon Senate president talks of unity in bridge dedication

As an osprey soared overhead and boaters floated nearby, a pedestrian and cyclist bridge that connects green spaces in Oregon’s capital city was dedicated Wednesday to the state Legislature’s longest-serving member. Oregon Senate President Peter Courtney, who is 74, recalled that he was a Salem city council member in the 1970s when city leaders wrestled over the decision to build a skybridge in downtown Salem.
