Dear Friends and Neighbors,
It is truly an honor to represent the people of the Central Coast and Coastal Range. This is a beautiful place, and it is no surprise the rest of Oregon vacations here.
We live in a part of the state blessed with natural beauty and remarkable economic potential. Every day I see people using their creativity and economic courage to create businesses and jobs, young people starting families, retirees bringing a lifetime of experience to our communities. I see all of you working to make Oregon better, stronger, and more livable.
As a legislator, I’ve worked to empower that “can do” spirit.
Over the past 30 years Susan and I have built a thriving small business. We believe in working hard and playing by the rules. And whether you own or work for a hotel, fishing boat, restaurant or a small farm, you know that creativity and industriousness should be recognized, empowered, and rewarded.
I don’t think five legislators in the Capitol actually own cash registers. This unique perspective makes a difference in Salem!
My priorities for a new term are better jobs, health care, education, and smarter government. I believe in good schools, safe neighborhoods, environmental sustainability, and independence and dignity for our older neighbors.
I’ve worked hard to frequently visit every corner of our large and diverse district. I’ve made a point to listen. I sincerely believe that good things happen when we work together. I’ll continue to use my experience, my enthusiasm, and my values to help create a brighter economic future for the people of Lincoln, Tillamook, Polk, and Yamhill Counties.
Thank you so much for the honor of allowing me to represent you.
Rep. David Gomberg
