“A Ferocious Champion for the Coast and Coast Range”
Effective: From water projects to fire departments, support for schools, colleges and universities, local cultural centers, ports, airports, and affordable housing, David Gomberg delivers.
Independent: Working with legislators of both parties, David brings people together and bridges political divides.
Accessible: David shows up. David communicates. No one works harder to reach every corner of our sprawling district, to listen, and to help.
“Gomberg is a Small Business Ally. His experience as a small business owner makes a difference on everything from taxes, to sick leave and regulation, to job creation.”
"We named David a Housing Champion for his leadership funding affordable housing and homelessness solutions."
Every day I see people using their creativity and raw economic courage to build businesses and jobs, young people starting families, retirees bringing a lifetime of experience to our communities. I see all of you helping to make Oregon better, stronger, and more interesting.
As a small business owner, I’ve had to face those challenges myself. As a legislator, I’ve worked to empower that “can do” spirit.
My priorities are better jobs, housing, health care, vocational training, public safety, and government accountability. I believe in good schools, safe neighborhoods, protecting our coast, and independence and dignity for our older neighbors.
