Transportation and Economic Development
We provide ongoing support to the Small Business Development Center at Oregon Coast Community College, which has helped create and retain hundreds of jobs through the years.
Our county’s economy is a four-legged stool: fishing, timber, tourism, and the newest leg: ocean science. For many in fishing and timber, employment isn’t just a job, it’s a way of life, handed down through the generations. I remain committed to building and diversifying our economy while insuring that our traditional industries remain strong.
