Stephen Marc Beaudoin is the board chair of the Multnomah Education Service District. This past Sunday, The Oregonian printed Stephen's opinion concerning the disastrous Measure 97. Stephen never imagined that he would oppose Measure 97, but after digging deep to find what the largest tax increase on GROSS sales would really do to our state, he is 100% against this crime of a measure. Stephen knows it will increase costs for every person, rich or poor in Oregon including, food, medical expenses, heat, gas, water, insurance and all goods and services. Stephen knows its a crime that the political hacks can spend those billions in any fashion they please and its clear that it makes no sense, no promise and no solution. A big thank you to this man that GETS IT.
