State Representative David Gomberg has filed for re-election in House District 10. The District stretches from Lincoln City to Junction City and from Philomath to Florence, encompassing all of Lincoln County and portions of Lane and Benton. “I’m deeply concerned about the state of politics today,” said Gomberg. “The extreme views of a few are getting in the way of cooperation, compromise, and the commonsense solutions that our communities really need. I understand that people are hurting and that we face many challenges – rising prices, housing and childcare, climate and wildfires, healthcare, mental health and crime. If we want to solve these problems, we have to work together. Our enemy is not the other party, it is division and extremism.”
Gomberg added, “I am grateful every day that you have honored me with the responsibility of representing you in our state capitol. And I work every day to make that job meaningful, to be a voice for our part of Oregon, and to produce real results.” Representative Gomberg serves as the vice-chair of the budget-writing Ways and Means Committee. Over the past five years, he has steered more than $100 million to the District for ports, water and sewer systems, parks, cultural plazas, welcome centers, rebuilding fire-damaged roads, rodeo stands, the fishing fleet, maritime industries, and community colleges.
“I have stood up to Portland and stood up for rural and coastal Oregon. I’m proud to have had a role in fixing Highway 20, in building a world class marine science center, of acquiring funding for rural housing and homelessness, finding money to replace our most vulnerable dam, supporting wildfire survivors, and even in creating a special license plate to celebrate our Oregon Coast.” “Representative Gomberg is one of the most effective and respected members of the House,” said Speaker Dan Rayfield. “He has worked across party lines to support rural infrastructure, rural economic development, and rural housing. He has really delivered for his district. The voters of House District 10 should be proud of their Representative and return him to Salem for another term.”
