    Keeping the South Coast Working

    Communities around our state are hurting, but Arnie knows our region has been hit hardest.

    • Securing $12.6 million to purchase the Coos Bay Rail Line to stop layoffs at mills and keep plants open
    • Leading the effort to deepen the Port at Coos Bay and bring thousands of new container jobs in the years ahead
    • 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.

    • Securing funding for K-12 and expanding healthcare for 80,000 children
    • Increasing funding for Oregon Project Independence so more seniors get the care they need in their own homes, instead of nursing homes
    • Fighting for state police coverage on our roads 24/7 and tough new laws cracking down on sexual predators
