Mayor Tamie Kaufman; Board Chairperson

Mayor Tamie Kaufman is a property manager by trade and has served on several committees for the City of Gold Beach and was elected Mayor in 2020.  Kaufman is almost a native to Gold Beach and also volunteers on the Citizens Review Board and the CCD Business Development Board.  Appointed to the ORCCA Board in late August 2021 she hopes to be helpful in problem solving issues that face the organization and to people in poverty.  Elevating people out of poverty is the best long term solution, in the meantime providing help whenever possible is important to the community.
