Proven Experience for the South Coast
Economic Development and JobsThe South Coast needs more family wage jobs and strong businesses. I am committed to promoting economic development by encouraging the growth of existing businesses while attracting new ones to the area.
Quality EducationOur schools need stable and secure funding. As Principal of Marshfield High School in Coos Bay, I have extensive experience in working with limited funding while still crafting a quality education for our students. Our capacity to keep doing this is wearing thin. I see an investment in our schools not only as an investment in our children, but also in our economy.
Affordable Health Care OptionsWorking families need access to affordable healthcare. As your representative, I will work to implement coverage options for both individuals and employers and make healthcare affordable for more Oregonians.
Despite our differences, one thing we agree on without question is that Arnie Roblan would be a great representative for the South Coast.
Mayor Joe Benetti, Coos Bay and Mayor Rick Wetherell, North Bend
Excellent legislators are knowledgeable about their district, they study the issues, and have the courage to represent their constituents. These qualities make Arnie the best choice to represent our district.
Representative Joanne Verger
Arnie is knowledgeable about the areas economic issues through his work as co-chair of the Friends of New and Sustainable Industry (FONSI) and as a Water Board member. As a legislator, Arnie will be an asset to our area and the state.
