Turning the Tide for the South Coast
Jobs that Support A Family
The South Coast needs more family wage jobs and strong businesses. I've been working hard to protect our local businesses and our natural resources economy. I stood up to political threats in Salem to cut funds for the North Bend Airport expansion and succeeded in bringing over $10 million to the project.
Putting Education First
Our children need stable, secure school funding. That's why I refused to vote for any plan that contained cuts to schools. As Principal of Marshfield High, I worked with limited funding and still came up with ways to craft a quality education. Today, educators are running out of options. We must fund schools first.
Making Health Care Affordable
Too many working families don't have access to affordable health care. I fought to require health insurers to hold public hearings before they can raise rates and to expand Oregon's prescription drug pool to include thousands more citizens.
"If there is one thing we both agree on, it is that Arnie Roblan is doing a great job for the South Coast"
Mayor Joe Benetti, Coos Bay and Mayor Rick Wetherell, North Bend
"Arnie Roblan is a strong voice of reason in the Oregon Legislature. Known and respected for his straight-forward honesty and character, he stands tall as the best person to represent you."
Senator Joanne Verger
"Arnie Roblan cares about the many issues facing senior citizens, He listens and takes action."
