Tel. (C) 541-297-2414

Arnie Roblan was born in Port Angeles, Washington. After completing his education, he moved to Coos Bay in 1972 with his wife.


His wife of 53 years, Arlene, spent 26 years with the Coos Bay School District and retired as Principal of Madison School in 2013. They have spent the last 49 years on the Oregon Coast where they raised their three children. All three attended Coos Bay schools and graduated from Marshfield High School. Arnie and Arlene also have two beautiful grandchildren.


Arnie first earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Washington and Master of Arts degree from the University of Oregon. He then began his lengthy career teaching mathematics at Marshfield High School in 1972. He held the positions of Dean of Students, Assistant Principal, and finally Principal of Marshfield High School in 1989. Soon after retiring from his principalship in 2004 Arnie was elected to Oregon State Legislature. Arnie has represented District 09 as an Oregon State Representative from 2005 to 2013 and District 05 as an Oregon State Senator from 2013 to 2021.


Through the years Arnie has been a driving force behind legislation that moved Oregon forward on critically important issues. In 2018, the Legislative Leadership tasked Senator Roblan with studying K-12 education and make recommendation on how to improve Oregon’s public education system. With his bipartisan committee, he traveled nearly 3,000 miles and visited 77 schools to listen directly to students, teachers, families and community members. With the passage of the Student Success Act, and as part of his lifelong commitment to fighting for education, Sen. Roblan was able to ensure that Oregon students were ready and able to learn during their educational path.


In his free time, Arnie enjoys reading, carpentry, bricklaying, and cooking.


“Students and Families of the Coos Bay School District are the most important to me as a Board member; to help every student reach their full potential and be able to pursue their passions.”

Coos Bay Public Schools are part of who Kim Brick is. Her dad graduated from Marshfield High School, she did the same, and each of her seven children have gone through the Coos Bay School system.

As a professional, Brick has spent her career working in nonprofits and volunteering for community organizations. So, when there was an opening on the school board in 2018, she applied for the position. She was later elected to a full term on the board in 2019.

In high school, Brick became pregnant with her first child and attended the teen parent program and alternative education programs to graduate on time. Her principal then, Arnie Roblan, now serves with Brick on the school board.

Brick currently serves as the chair of the school board and has become active in advocating for Coos Bay Schools in a larger capacity. She recently became the first Coos Bay representative on the Oregon School Board Members of Color Caucus and was elected to serve as secretary. Brick is also a state advocate for special education with the Oregon Department of Education.

She also volunteers with the Star of Hope and the Bay Area Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership Coos Steering Committee.

When she has free time, she enjoys spending time with her family and homesteading.
