State lawmakers on a “listening tour” to hear from Oregonians about schools, colleges, public safety, senior programs and road/highway projects
Central Coast Representative David Gomberg says the state budget-writing Ways and Means Committee will convene in Lincoln City April 14th to listen to what citizens have to say about the state of Oregon education, colleges, public safety, programs for seniors, roads, highways and bridges. Representative Gomberg said it’s a face-to-face opportunity to meet with those with their sharp pencils on the state budget. He said the committee wants to compare what they’re hearing from people at the state capitol compared to the people across the state. Gomberg says he’s hopeful there will be a large turnout on the 14th, at the Lincoln City Cultural Center, 6:30pm.
Throughout April, the Committee will hold similar “Road Shows” with public chat sessions in Klamath Falls, La Grande, Grants Pass, Boardman, Springfield, and the Portland area. The April 14th event in Lincoln City is the only one on the Coast.
Any member of the public is welcome to address the hearing. Students and educators are encouraged to attend.
Representative Gomberg serves on the Ways and Means Committee and co-chairs the subcommittee on Transportation and Economic Development.
