Bi-Partisan Consultants To Lead Push For Arts Tax

Former Mecklenburg Commissioner Darrel Williams will chair a new organization created to convince voters to support a quarter-cent sales tax for the arts.

The group, Partnership for a better Mecklenburg Committee, will be filing its paperwork soon to the Mecklenburg Board of Elections, according to a news release.

Williams will be leading three different consultants.

* Aisha Dew, the former chairwoman of Mecklenburg Democrats and the former vice chair of the state Democratic party.

* Patrick Sebastian, a Republican strategist with Majority Strategies.

* Brad Cone, an independent consultant who has worked on political campaigns for 28 years.

The quarter-cent tax, which is projected to raise $50 million in its first year, will be on the November ballot.
