on Measure 67
Measures 66 and 67 help to make our tax system more fair and protect critical services. For years, as a teacher, and now retired teacher, I have seen schools and educational staff bear the burden of shortages in our state. Many cuts in days and programs in our schools have hurt our students. These measures will make Oregon's tax system fair and protect vital services. It will help preserve essential services in K-12 education, home care for seniors and the Oregon Health Plan. Oregon's corporate minimum tax hasn't changed since 1931 and for years two/ thirds of the corporations doing business in Oregon have paid only $10. in corporate minimum tax.In passing these measures we will protect vital services without putting more of the burden on the middle class. I do not want to see my grandchildren lose their teachers and have large class sizes in their classrooms. I want them to have the quality education they deserve.
