Sean Carlton, Director

1 4 Years 6/30/2021

Sean_CarltonSean was born in Ann Arbor, Michigan but grew up in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains in Loveland Colorado. After graduating High School, his love of the ocean beckoned him to attend the University of California, Santa Barbara where he majored in microbiology, and minored in fun. For his 21st birthday, a group of friends went wine tasting in Santa Barbara wine country, and he found his calling.

Full bio
After graduation, Sean moved to the Napa Valley and started working for Pine Ridge Winery in the Stags Leap District. His future wife Chenin started working there a few years later and they were married in 2000. Sean eventually became a Sales Manager, and spent 50% of his time traveling all over the country selling wine to retailers and restaurants.After six years on the road, Sean was promoted to Vice President and General Manger of Archery Summit Winery, Pine Ridge Winery’s sister winery in Dundee, Oregon and arrived in July of 2001. Driving to his first day on the job, Sean encountered an overturned semi-truck with glass bottles raining down a hillside, which turned out to be the entire supply of glass for that days bottling. He’s been putting out fires ever since!

During his time at Archery Summit, Sean and Chenin started a small organic farm and farmed 4 acres of cherry trees, as well as raising steer, lamb, and over 300 laying hens, and he’s had egg on his face ever since! Once again feeling the call of the ocean, they bought a small home in Pacific City in 2003.

Getting tired of all the travel and corporate shenanigans, Sean and Chenin started their own wine label in 2004, and quit their day jobs in 2006 and moved permanently to the coast. Getting concerned with the implementation of land use regulations in Pacific City, Sean joined the board of the Pacific City/Woods Citizens Advisory Committee in 2010 first as treasurer, then Chair-Elect and currently serves as the Chair. Sean and Chenin operate Twist Wine Company and Reversal Apparel and gifts in downtown Pacific City.

annepriceIt took me 50+ years, living in Detroit (MI) where I was born, Covington (TN) where I grew up on a farm riding horses, Bellevue (WA) where I attended junior high and high school, then Portland where I attended college, to finally arrive in Pacific City. After graduating from Lewis & Clark College with a B.A. in French Language & Literature, I worked in International Education, then Admissions, finishing my career with the College as Registrar 27 years later. Through those years I traveled extensively throughout the U.S. and internationally for work and pleasure. My wanderlust is satisfied!

I’ve always believed that a community is what its members make of it. I have served on the Board of Neskowin Valley School, on the Tillamook County Planning Commission, and, more recently, as the inaugural Chair of the PCWoods Citizens Planning Advisory Committee. I am privileged to serve now on the Board for PCJWSA.Monday through Friday I work at Oregon Coast Bank in Pacific City. And, I discovered that I am not too old to ride a horse, so in my spare time I enjoy hours on the trail with “Pete,” and whoever else wants to go along. It’s a good life!

Sean Lambert, Secretary

seanlambertI grew up in Lincoln City, spending quite a bit of my free time at the beach and fishing. After finishing high school, I moved to Salem and attended Willamette University. At Willamette, I graduated with a BS in physics, with minors in mathematics and computer science. After graduating in 1994, I moved to Portland where I worked for an advertising and public relations firm for about four years. The owners of the agency offered $1000 to the first person to get a tattoo of the name of the agency. I jumped at the chance, received my $1000 (before taxes!) and still wear the tattoo today.
Full bio
After working for a couple of software companies in Portland, my fiancé Shae and I decided to relocate back to the Oregon coast. I started working at Tillamook County Creamery Association (TCCA) in 2003. In September 2003, we got married at Camp Westwind and moved to Pacific City in January of 2004.On Father’s Day in 2005, Shae and I welcomed our daughter Sophia into the world. Sophia decided that she wanted to arrive six weeks early. Sophia spent about 10 days at OHSU, but finally got to come home to the beach. Now Sophia is a Younger (first grade) at Neskowin Valley School and is full of energy.I still work in the IT department at TCCA as the Applications Manager. I have spent time on a number of other boards in Tillamook County, including Nestucca Ridge Homeowner’s Association, Tillamook Urban Renewal Agency and Tillamook Farmers’ Market board. Being a recreational runner, I appreciate and consume more than my share of drinking water, so I look forward to serving on the PCJWSA board to learn more about the processes and people that support our community water supply. Hopefully my experience will help benefit the agency.

Cameron Gogas, Director

4 4 years 6/30/21

Born and raised in Portland, where my family lived until 1973, when we moved to Pacific City to start a local fish company. I graduated from Nestucca High School and worked in the family business until 1992.  

After graduation, I went to work for Louisiana Pacific in Tillamook for 5 years and then spent 10 years with Boise Cascade before working for the Forest Service and Tide Water servicing oil rigs in the Gulf.  

However, my continued desire to help my community turned into 20+ years as a volunteer firefighter and First Responder/EMT, 5 years with the US Coast Guard Auxiliary, volunteering at the Kiwanda Community Center, membership with the Pacific City Dorymen’s Association and working in Security & EMS at Chinook Winds where I met Pam, my wife of seven years.

I believe everyone who is fortunate enough to make Pacific City their home, full or part time, as an individual or business, deserves to have their voice heard, to be an informed participant in what makes and keeps where we live desirable and wonderful. I hope my position on the PCJWSA board can help build equality and a positive future for Pacific City.

carolynmcvickerCarolyn grew up in various small towns in the state of Washington, lived for many years in larger cities in the Pacific Northwest (Seattle, Portland), and together with her husband happily claims the small town of Pacific City as her home (part-time since 1996, full-time since 2004).Carolyn specializes in helping people (often with opposing interests) identify their main goals and objectives and work out a successful plan to ensure that they are realized. Her wide-ranging professional background includes counseling, organizational development, fund-raising, public policy, family business, and obstetrical nursing. She has a BA in Nursing and a BS in Psychology from Seattle University and a MA in Counseling from Santa Clara University.
Full bio
The efforts to define and re-define (or not) the south county area that includes Pacific City has been a special focus of Carolyn’s energies over the last dozen years. She has served on the boards of the Nestucca Ridge Homeowner’s Association, Pacific City Joint Water Sanitation Authority, Neskowin Chamber Music, Pacific City Pathways, etc., etc., etc. Carolyn has played a leading role in getting the various public agencies to share a common vision and meet at the table, for example, successfully bringing more recreational lands into public hands (Whalen Island).Carolyn is excited at how well an unincorporated town like Pacific City can manage itself and its growth based on the strengths of a diverse group of volunteers, all of whom want to see their special visions of Pacific City continue to survive and thrive. One of her big hopes for the community is to see everyone, part-timers as well as full-timers, take some role in actively building and maintaining the community.

*Directors elect officers biennially.   Next election will be held the first Tuesday in July 2019.
