King County Ballot Measures

King County Proposition #1

Vote YES on Prop 1: Access for All

YES
Public funding for arts and science programs has been cut in half over the last decade. These cuts predominantly hurt schools in low-income communities, despite the fact that exposure to arts, science, and heritage experiences can dramatically improve a child's educational success. King County Prop. 1 will improve education outcomes for every student in King County by expanding access to arts, science, and heritage education. Prop. 1 will fund in-class programs and free field trips for every student in every district to our region's world-class museums, science institutions, and cultural centers, as well as provide free and reduced-price memberships to regional institutions for people on a fixed budget, including seniors, low-income, and middle-class families. Finally, Prop 1. will provide stable funding for more than 300 small community-based arts, science, and heritage institutions throughout the entire county, with money set aside to further boost grants for small organizations that primarily serve communities of color.

Access for All is funded by a 1/10 of one cent increase in the county sales tax, or one penny for every $10 you spend. Vote YES on Proposition 1 to ensure every student in King County has access to arts, science, and heritage education.

Incumbent Dow Constantine has been a strong and effective leader for King County. In his three terms, Constantine has defended King County Metro transit service, improved key infrastructure, and promoted the health of our natural environment. Constantine is leading efforts to protect King County from the Trump administration by proposing to triple the Veterans and Human Services Levy and offering regional support for the Paris climate agreement.

He is running against three perennial candidates: Goodspaceguy, retired engineer and light rail opponent Bill Hirt, and physicist Stan Lippmann. Constantine has clearly earned another term as county executive.
