Lincoln City small businessman David Gomberg has filed to run again for State Representative in the sprawling 10th House District. The district ranges from the Tillamook city limits to Yachats and inland to Sheridan and Falls City.
“I’m honored and I’m proud to represent this very special part of Oregon. I
committed to frequently visit every corner of our large and diverse district. I’ve made a point to listen. And I worked hard to reflect the values and interests of the people from the Central Coast and Coastal Range.”
Gomberg was first elected in 2012. He quickly emerged as a persistent
advocate for small business, tourism, the environment, education, and older
Oregonians. In his first term, he was the only House member appointed to the
Governor’s Commission on Senior Services and was named Oregon Legislator of
the Year by the Humane Society of the United States for his work on animal
In 2014, Gomberg ran for re-lection. He is a Democrat but was nominated by
the Democrat, Republican, Independent, and Working Families parties. No other House candidate was endorsed by all four parties.
“I was proud to earn the endorsement of Democrats, Republicans, and
Independents in the last election. I sincerely believe that good things
happen when we work together. That’s why I first decided to run for the
State Legislature. That’s why I’m running again. I’m running to continue
working for the kids and families who live in our district, for our seniors,
and for our small businesses.”
In 2015, Gomberg was appointed to co-chair the influential Transportation
and Economic Development subcommittee of the budget-writing Ways and Means
Committee. He was recently elected to a leadership position in the Democratic Caucus, providing an important Coastal perspective to the largely metropolitan panel.
For his advocacy of education, Representative Gomberg was the recipient of
the first “Friend of the College” award from Oregon Coast Community College.
Susan and David Gomberg own Gomberg Kite Productions and Northwest Winds
Kite stores. “I don’t think there are five legislators in Salem that actually own cash registers.” said Gomberg. “That’s gives me a unique perspective which reflects our core economies of fishing, farming, and tourism in our small business district.”
