Tobias Read worked at one time for Nike. I couldn't get to first base fishing around what happened there, so lets say he quit on good terms to be a political hack. Is that fair? Today Tobias is all in for Measure 97, the greatest tax theftin Oregon history. Tobias Read is running for Oregon State Treasurer. I will be voting for Jeff Gudman. This tax will drench not only large corporations but the other 99% too. YOU & ME. The tax is on GROSS sales, meaning many companies will close their doors. Powell's Books is a good example. Everyone will be paying MORE for insurance on their cars and homes, gas, electricity, food, basic services and more. Politicians like Read can spend the billions they steal anyway they please. Tobias should read the op-ed piece by Stephen Beaudoin (Board chair of the school district) who clearly states this measure fails every test of reason. It's a shame Tobias Read never made a personal payroll.
Tiger Branch wrote most of the slogans you can sing in your head. Tiger created campaigns that were memorable and most of all fun. His agency during the fun times of broadcasting were under the hat of Branch & Bauer. Those guys knew how to deliver results. Today most ad people take a sales order and go to Bend for the weekend. This agency rocked TV and radio. Tiger never sold ads, he created ideas.
