Rep. Gomberg receives nomination from Independent Party and Working Families Party
[Lincoln City] – David Gomberg, running for re-election in Oregon State House District 10, has been nominated by the Independent Party of Oregon. In May, he received the nomination of the Democratic Party. He has now also received the nomination of the Working Families Party of Oregon. The November election ballot will reflect the support of all three political parties.
“I’m a Democrat”, said Rep Gomberg. “But I’m a moderate Democrat who works across party lines to find bi-partisan solutions to the many problems we face. I’m honored to again receive the nomination of the Independent Party of Oregon, and the Working Families Party. I support their vision of inclusion, transparency, campaign finance reform, and open government.”
Rep. Gomberg is the only candidate in the race who received these nominations, demonstrating his broad appeal among coast and coastal range Oregonians.
The IPO is the third largest political party in Oregon. Candidates filled out questionnaires about voting rights, democracy, the environment, and reproductive health. Questionnaires were assessed and the Party held its caucus before announcing nominations.
The Working Families Party describes themselves as a party of “working people, school parents, small business owners, family farmers, representatives of community groups and labor unions — Oregonians from all walks of life and all areas of the state.”
“Our political system is deeply polarized but Representative Gomberg has been squarely focused on solutions that make sense rather than deepening the division between us,” said Sal Peralta for the IPO. “He has a critical eye for legislation that makes sense and impacts issues such as homelessness, housing affordability, and public safety. The Independent Party of Oregon is proud to support Rep Gomberg.”
In Oregon, candidates running as a member of a one party can seek nominations from other parties. Those nominations will be listed on the websites, in Voter Pamphlet Statements, and on the November ballot.
