Video Town Hall

Video Town Hall: Local residents meet with State Rep. Dave Gomberg via video during one of the town hall presentations.

Lincoln City and Newport residents have the opportunity to question state legislators during a series of live video town hall meetings at Oregon Coast Community College.

The next video town hall meeting in this series between Lincoln County residents and their elected officials in Salem is set for 7:30 a.m. Friday, Feb. 16 at OCCC’s  Lincoln City and Newport locations.

The 2018 short legislative session is getting down to business in Salem.

Throughout every full-length legislative term, Lincoln County residents can meet twice monthly with their representatives, live via video conference from Oregon Coast Community College’s facilities in Lincoln City and Newport. For this special short February session (standard schedule for OCCC every other year), the College is hosting just one town hall event.

The public is invited to attend this free event, during which they will have the opportunity to pose questions directly to their elected representatives, via videoconference.

Last year at this time, the College hosted semi-monthly video town halls from February through spring, throughout the busiest portions of the full legislative session

The College’s video conference utility can accommodate a limited number of attendees whose schedules or circumstances may prevent them from getting to the College for the session. To request one of these slots and to join the video call live from your home or office, call OCCC's Dave Price at 541-994-4166.

OCCC’s Central County Campus is located at 400 SE College Way in Newport. The North County Center in Lincoln City is located at 3788 SE High School Drive.

For information about the Newport event, call 541-867-8501. For details about the Lincoln City location, call North County Coordinator Shirley Hill at 541-994-4166.

Oregon Coast Community College serves Lincoln County through centers in Waldport, Newport and Lincoln City. To learn more about OCCC and its programs and services, visit
