Portland's Music Community Says Yes to Ballot Measure 26-146

Election Day is tomorrow! You won't ordinarily find political stuff on End Hits, but I think this is important, and members of the Portland music community think so, too.

I'm hoping that you'll vote YES on Ballot Measure 26-146. That's the measure to restore vital arts funding to Portland schools. The above video includes endorsements from Alela Diane, Jose Medeles of Revival Drum Shop, Cool Nutz, John Moen of the Decemberists, Sarah Versprille and Dan Hindman of Pure Bathing Culture, Manny Reyes of Atole, Neal Morgan, and Vursatyl of Lifesavas. You've probably already voted, or at least decided what you're going to vote for, but if you want more information on Measure 26-146, School and Arts Together has plenty of information for you. In the meantime, here's a quick graphic about how Portland's arts funding stacks up:


Okay! All done politicking. Hopefully that wasn't too bad. Let's hope the next time you see any political endorsements from End Hits is a long, long four years from now.
