Keeping the South Coast Working
Communities all over our state are hurting, but Arnie knows our region has been hit hardest.
- Leading the effort to deepen the Port at Coos Bay and bringing thousands of new container jobs in the years ahead
- Securing $12.6 million to purchase the Coos Bay Rail Line to stop layoffs at mills and keep plants open
- Establishing a new fund to give loans and grants for small businesses creating new jobs and hiring Oregonians
Fighting for Us
Many politicians don't understand the problems we face locally. Arnie Roblan is leading the fight to make sure we get our fair share.
- Protecting our local timber and commercial fishing industries
- Forcing officials in Washington, DC to keep their promises and make federal timber payments
Protecting our Children, Families and Communities
With over 30 years as a high school principal and teacher, Arnie understands we must respect each other's differences and work together.
- Securing funding for K-12 and expanding healthcare for 80,000 children
- Increasing critical funding for Oregon Project Independence so more seniors can get the care they need in their own homes, instead of a nursing home
- Fighting for state police coverage on our roads 24/7
"Oregonians are hurting. Too many people are out of work and too many families have lost their homes. The challenges we face aren't liberal or conservative. They are Oregon challenges. And we can solve them with honesty, independence and determination."
