“I am running for State Senate because too many people in our community can’t find a job, and for too long the Legislature has done nothing about it,” said Coe. “I believe my lifetime of first-hand experience creating jobs is just what Oregon needs right now. I know what it means to sign both sides of a paycheck, and I believe Oregon needs that type of leadership to put our families back on the path towards success.”
For 45 years Gary Coe has been a partner in Speed’s Towing, the most prominent tow service serving greater Portland and beyond. Coe has been recognized as the Service Entrepreneur of the Year and Corporate Citizenship Award by The Volunteers of America. Gary Coe is a founder and past president of both the Oregon Tow Truck Association and The Towing and Recovery Association of America.
In the community, Gary Coe served two terms as President of the Central Eastside Industrial Council, and Speed’s Towing currently handles the auto donation programs for 21 charities and non-profits, raising an average of $37,000 per week for that group.
Gary Coe owns several other small businesses, including Pacific Cascade Towncar, which largely provides transportation to and from the Portland airport and Retriever Towing, which since 1975 has served property management companies, business owners, and the Portland Police with parking problems.
“Oregon should be a place where families can thrive and prosper,” said Coe. “Unfortunately, current leaders have been unable to find a path out of double-digit unemployment. I believe with a common sense focus on job creation and fiscal responsibility, Oregon will begin to look like the place it should be.”
Gary Coe is the father of 4 adult children and lives in the Sylvan area.
