COOS BAY—Arnie Roblan, state representative for House District 9 and candidate for Oregon’s Senate District 5, will host a conversation on education on Thursday, June 28 at 7:00pm. In order to involve as many coastal citizens as possible the conversation will occur as a telephone town hall. Roblan will be joined by Lincoln County School District Superintendent Tom Rinearson to talk about ideas to support schools and education in Oregon.

Education has been a primary focus for Roblan while serving in Salem as a legislator—and that’s because facilitating opportunities for children on the Coast has been his life’s work. Roblan was a teacher, then dean of students, and finally principal at Coos Bay’s Marshfield High School before being elected state representative in 2004.

“I’m committed to creating opportunity on the South Coast, and it starts with education. Our children are our greatest asset and I want to ensure that voters have a chance to share their thoughts on schools and let me know what they want from their Senator in Salem,” said Roblan.

The telephone town hall is designed to make it easy for residents from all corners of the district to participate in the conversation. Residents can simply call the dial-in number: (877) 229-8493, access code 16008, to talk with Roblan and Rinearson about Education and their children’s future on the Oregon Coast.

“I've been working to ensure that all of our children on the Coast receive a quality education, but it is important to me to hear my constituents' thoughts on issues affecting our public schools," said Roblan. “The telephone town hall is a great way for citizens concerned about education to let their voices be heard."

Local high school teacher Mark Lorincz said "As a teacher, I am eager to talk with Arnie Roblan regarding ideas about moving our schools forward. This town hall provides the ideal forum to do that. I hope that my fellow community members along the coast will join me in participating in the telephone town hall."
