No on Measure 64
|Because I give to charities through a payroll deduction at work, Measure 64 unfairly singles out public employees like me. Each month I give to United Way and the Governor's Food drive – not only would this measure affect the great work United Way does in our cities, counties and state, but if this measure passes it will put even more stress on our counties’ Food Banks. Measure 64 is very bad for the neediest citizens of our state. That’s just not fair.

|I have the freedom to choose if I want to donate to charities or my union’s advocacy work now. Measure 64 takes away that choice and silences my voice. That’s why I’m voting no on 64.
--Phyllis Wills, Hillsboro, OR
|Without the food bank we'd be pretty damned hungry. The food bank really helps. Sometimes we go for two weeks without food. We just pay our rent and lights, that's it, but we can't always buy food. If Measure 64 passes, the food bank wouldn’t be able to do food drives at places like schools and libraries and it would make it harder for them to get food to people like me. That’s why I’m voting no on Measure 64.
--Steven Devine, Gaston, OR
|If it wasn't for the food bank, we wouldn't have made it through the winter. I would've been homeless. The food bank kept me going. I’m 100% disabled and a veteran, and for ten months I didn't have any income…without the food bank I wouldn't have made it. I know the food bank speaks for folks like me in Salem. Measure 64 would make it harder for them to help make my voice heard, so I’m voting no on this measure.
