Seven Mayors Endorse Roblan for Senate

Mayors up and down Oregon Coast praise Arnie Roblan.

Citing his long track record of delivering results for the Oregon Coast, seven mayors in Senate District 5 announced their endorsement of Arnie Roblan for state senate.

“It doesn’t matter what party you are, Arnie Roblan is clearly the best choice to get things done for communities on the coast,” said Mayor Phil Brubaker of Florence.

Roblan was first elected to the state House of Representatives in 2004, serving District 9 which comprises the southern half of the senate district he is seeking to represent. Roblan’s accomplishments include the rebuilding of the Coos Bay Rail Line and helping to recruit the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to Newport.

“Toledo and Lincoln County will be well-served by Arnie Roblan’s focus on bringing jobs to the coastal region and fighting for middle class families,” said Mayor Ralph Grutzmacher of Toledo. “Arnie’s a proven leader who will stand up to Portland politicians and put our needs first.”

The list of mayors in Senate District 5 that have endorsed Arnie Roblan includes:

  • Mayor Carol Connors, Depoe Bay
  • Mayor Mark McConnell, Newport
  • Mayor Rick Wetherell, North Bend
  • Mayor Keith Tymchuk, Reedsport
  • Mayor Ralph Grutzmacher, Toledo
  • Mayor Susan Woodruff, Waldport
  • Mayor Ronald Brean, Yachats

“I’m honored to receive support from local leaders up and down Oregon’s Coast,” said Roblan. “I truly value their leadership for each community, and I look forward to collaborating with each of them to make sure the needs of our coast are heard in Salem.”

“Arnie Roblan has always gone to the mat for the Oregon Coast,” said Mayor Keith Tymchuk of Reedsport. “I look forward to our continued partnership to make the coast a better place to own a business and raise a family.”

Roblan also indicated that as senator he will continue to work closely with the communities he has represented in the Oregon House.
