When looking for the right presidential candidate to vote for, many voters think about issues, such as foreign policy and employment.  But one other subject is gaining popularity.

That's the creative sector, which includes the arts.  DebPolich, who is the president of the Arts Alliance in Ann Arbor, says it's a topic that can't be ignored because of the impact it has right here in Washtenaw County.  Just the non-profit sector alone contributes about $100 million in our county and an additional $181 million in wages for the creative industries.
