oh they want the tourist money huh? this should be interesting. i just remember the slog's position when the UW wanted that same money for a new football stadium, and it seems to me like all your arguments about why they shouldn't get it still apply here. but, this is something that you want this time, so who cares, right?
@1, That tourist money has been funding 4Culture for 20 years. We're asking for the original funding mechanism to be extended, as it expires in 2012. More info is available on the Advocate4Culture website (link above).

Whether or not it's really fair to compare $4.5 million that supports the arts throughout the county to the $150 million that UW was asking for I'll leave to you.
Sent my messages to my senator and representatives today!
Called my representatives also - literally took 4 minutes!!

Please wait...
