State Representative-Elect David Gomberg appointed as Vice Chair Human Services and Housing Committee
Representative-Elect David Gomberg will be sworn in as State Representative for House District 10 on January 14 during an organizational session of the Oregon Legislature. District 10 ranges from Waldport to Tillamook and inland to Sheridan along Highway 18.
Gomberg has been named Vice Chair of the Human Services and Housing Committee. He will also serve on the budget writing Ways and Means Subcommittee for General Governance and the Education Committee.
“These are great committees,” said Gomberg. “Senior concerns are critical to my new district where half of the population is over the age of 55. A leadership position on Human Services will allow me to continue the great work that Jean Cowan has provided on aging and senior issues.”
“The Education Committee is an ideal place to advocate for our students, our schools and our community colleges.” Gomberg added that it is unusual for a freshman legislator to be appointed to the influential Ways and Means Committee. “I will, of course, be focused on job creation and economic development. But all things considered, I’m pleased with these appointments and the opportunity to champion issues important to Central Oregon Coast.”
Gomberg also announced that Angie Allbee of Newport will be serving as his Chief-of-Staff and District Liaison. The local office phone number will be 541-921-2038. Ethan Krow will serve as Legislative Assistant.
Representative Gomberg has reported his legislative priorities are stimulating the local economy, improving funding for education, overcoming barriers for small businesses, creating local jobs and improving the health and safety of his constituents.
The House will meet for an organizational session January 14-16, 2013, which will include the swearing in of all House members, the official election of the presiding officers and introduction of bills. The 2013 Session will officially begin February 4.
Gomberg can be found in Office 371 on the House side of the Capitol. His mailing address is:
