During my first 2 years as your State Representative, I was busy fighting legislation that would harm our Coastal Communities. This was and always be my top priority as your representative. I will continue to fight and stand up against any legislation that would harm our local and statewide businesses and industries.

While keeping my top priority, I was very successful in our first legislative session working on solutions for our coastal communities. These include the following:

  • Rural Veterans Healthcare Transportation Grant Program for our Veterans
  • Green Bag Bottle Drop programs on the coast
  • Investments in our Port of Coos Bay
  • Water infrastructure investments for Lakeside & Mapleton
  • Investments in the arts – Little Theater on the Bay renovation
  • Investments in public safety – Firefighters training center tower at Southwestern Oregon Community College


I’ve lived here for nearly 50 years. We’ve raised 4 children and have 7 grandchildren.

I’ve educated children as a teacher, principal, and superintendent. I know how to listen, manage, and bring about positive change. We need coastal common sense in Salem. -BOOMER WRIGHT
