We all want what’s best for our children. Only a YES vote on Measures 66 and 67 will protect funding for our kids’ schools.
Values: The latest television ad from Vote Yes for Oregon
Jan 13, 2010
How we respond to the recession is a test of who we are as a people. Strong schools are the key to our economic recovery and our children's future. It's irresponsible and short sighted to keep cutting education funding while some big corporations continue to pay just $10 in the corporate minimum tax.
Watch the most recent advertisement from the Vote Yes for Oregon campaign and our partners at the PTA, AARP, and the Oregon Small Business Council, then Vote Yes on Measure 66 & 67, it's the right thing to do.
The recession has put Oregon's economy on the brink. Vital services like education and health care are facing drastic cuts. Oregon can no longer afford to let big corporations and the rich off the hook.

We all want what's best for our children. Voting Yes on Measures 66 & 67 will help protect what's best for our kids by preserving funding for schools.
Here are the basics:
Measures 66 and 67 protect the equivalent of:
$285.5 million for K-12 education: enough to pay for 1,610 teachers and 1,057 hourly employees such as custodians, bus drivers, and cafeteria workers.
$24.4 million for Oregon's community colleges, preventing tuition and fee increases.
$39.9 million for the Oregon University System, keeping higher education and professional training accessible.
$5.1 million for student assistance.
$4.1 million for Oregon Health and Science University, training tomorrow's health care providers.
It’s time to protect critical services and middle class
taxpayers. This January, voters can protect education at every level by voting
YES on Measures 66 & 67. By voting YES to raise the corporate minimum and
the tax rates on households with income above $250,000, we can preserve
essential services like K-12 education, in-home care for seniors, and the
Oregon Health Plan through these tough economic times.
