I've known David Gomberg for over 20 years, first as the executive director of the Lincoln City Chamber of Commerce and then as a successful business owner. He knows the struggles that small businesses face in order to thrive in a difficult economic climate.
A couple of years ago, while I was serving as county commissioner, David approached our board with a suggestion that our county code needed to be amended to make it easier for home-based businesses to operate in the unincorporated areas of the county. He recommended that the county encourage entrepreneurism and small business development rather than place roadblocks in our code. We agreed and made changes because of his suggestions.
David understands the need to provide living-wage jobs and affordable health care to employees in order to keep the Oregon Coast moving forward.
David understands the legislative process from his previous experience working in Salem with the Legislature and he will be a strong advocate for the coast.
We need a state representative who has the energy, experience, dedication and solid leadership to stand up for our interests. We need David Gomberg as our next representative. I'm pleased to see someone with his ideas and commitment running and I urge you to give David Gomberg your vote.
