OtB endorses YES on King County Prop 1 Jul 18, 2017
by Betsey Brock
On the Boards is supporting Prop 1 because Access for All will open doors to art and culture, creating new opportunities for all King County residents.
This past spring, On the Boards staff and board members repeatedly joined arts and culture colleagues, filling King County Council chambers to testify and show support for this important ballot measure that could bring nearly $70 million a year into King County arts, science and heritage organizations with only a 0.1% sales tax increase.
While it's obvious that our county is flourishing economically, arts organizations are not yet benefitting from that growth in a way that allows us to grow programs and expand engagement commensurately; not all residents have the means to benefit from our rich and diverse cultural opportunities. Prop 1 will change that.
Prop 1 Access For All will make a big difference for On the Boards, to our region, and for our future artists and audiences.
Executive Director, On the Boards
