Pam Welch is afraid to let her 4-year-old daughter play outside after finding four sheep and one alpaca dead — with deep lacerations on their necks — on the family’s 100-acre working farm in Summit.“I am losing sleep trying to keep watch over my flocks every night,” Welch said. “We’re building new fencing, and we’ve moved all of our animals closer to the house. Nothing is working. What are we supposed to do now?” – Corvallis Gazette-Times, October 15, 2014
Representative David Gomberg (D) – District 10 – Central Oregon CoastCapitol Phone:503-986-1410Dear Friends and Neighbors,It is a real honor to represent the Central Oregon Coast and the communities of the Coastal Range. This is a remarkably beautiful place, and it is no surprise that the rest of Oregon comes to our district to play, vacation and relax. Like many of you, I’m a small business person. And like you, I believe in working hard and playing by the rules. Small business is a constant theme here. And whether you own or work for a bed & breakfast, a fishing boat, a restaurant or on a small farm, you know that creativity and industriousness should be recognized, empowered, and rewarded. That’s how we create jobs on the coast! During these tough economic times, creating jobs and providing help for working families will continue to be my top priorities. I remain committed to adequate funding for education, health care and public safety. I believe in good schools for our kids and grandkids, livable neighborhoods and independence for our retired neighbors and that good transportation networks are critical for our economic health. You will find me a particular supporter of community colleges, the small business development centers and of “buy local”. Those tools will help us help each other to thrive. These are challenging times. It will take all of us working together to put Oregon back on the path to economic prosperity. Your input is very important. I am committed to listening to YOU and to working for YOU. Please use the links on this page to keep in touch.
