Tuesday, Nov. 3 is Election Day.
Since 1975, the public sector has played a critical role in supporting and growing Charlotte-Mecklenburg’s cultural sector. Since that time, ASC has only been able to fund the cultural sector by combining resources from local and state government with those of the private sector to maximize community impact.
Be an informed voter at the polls this year, and learn the candidate’s positions about Charlotte-Mecklenburg’s cultural community.
The questionnaire was distributed by ASC and was provided to candidates running for city, town and board of education positions.
Candidates shared their positions about public funding of cultural programs, and the role arts, science, history and heritage should play in our communities and schools. Read the candidate responses below.
