M66/67 needs your help now!

Posted in M66/67, Uncategorized by Alliance for Democracy Portland OR on November 14, 2009

It is not too soon to start promoting the Yes vote on M66 and 67 to increase the Oregon state minimum corporate income tax and personel income tax. 
 
The state minimum corporate income tax has been $10 since 1931.  It is time that this tax increaed. 2/3 of corporations in Oregon (including some of the very largest) only pay the minimum. The new tax will start at $150.00 now and that is what most corporations will pay for the privilege of doing business in Oregon.
 
The personel income tax increase will only affect the wealthiest 3% of Oregonian.  For couples that mean an increase only if you make over a quarter million dollars a year and then only on the amount over that amount.
 
It is time for some tax fairness in Oregon.  Vote Yes on M66 and 67 in January.  Work for the success of the Yes campaign now.  See below on how you can help below.

Three Simple Ways To Protect Oregon This Thankgiving

When times are at their toughest, Oregonians come together to make sure that those who need us most–children, seniors, struggling families–aren’t left in the cold with nowhere to turn. This Thanksgiving, that means working to pass Measures 66 and 67 in order to preserve critical funding for schools and basic services that Oregonians depend on.

The election is more than two months away (January 26), but now is the time to get the word out. Below is a list of ways you can get involved over the next two weeks to help protect Oregon’s future.

Host a Turkey Talk on Thanksgiving

You may already be cooking and having people over, so why not turn your Thanksgiving Feast into an opportunity to talk to your friends and family about what’s at stake this January?

The Yes For Oregon Coalition has everything you need to get a simple conversation started with your guests. The Turkey Talk Kit includes conversation starters, FAQs, and even a simple table piece that will help you talk about why these measures are important to you.

There are two ways to get your Turkey Talk Kit and join hundreds of other Oregonians hosting Turkey Talks: Call 503-234-0444 or email Christel Allen at christel, or download directly from our brand new website at www.VoteYesForOregon.org
