Michelle Wu for Mayor Releases First TV Ad
Released on: August 19, 2021
Boston, MA — The Michelle Wu for Mayor campaign released their first TV ad today , with buys in both English and Spanish, on cable and broadcast. The ad highlights Wu’s record as one of the most effective leaders in Boston and her vision to tackle the affordable housing crisis and high cost of living in the city. The first half of the ad was filmed inside the iconic Mike’s Diner in the South End, while the second half was filmed in Jamaica Plain with dozens of campaign supporters and volunteers. Check out the full ad in English and the Spanish-language version.
These TV buys complement the campaign’s outreach to Haitian, Chinese, Vietnamese and Brazilian outlets through digital, radio and print advertising.
Michelle Wu’s record of results were highlighted in the ad. Those major accomplishments include:
Passing paid parental leave for city employees in 2015, a law later praised by President Obama;
Taking on big corporations that were driving up cost of rents;
Leading reforms to make Boston’s City contracting more equitable and adding accountability for the outrageously low percentage of contracts for minority-owned businesses;
Passed Community Choice Energy, the biggest move to ramp up renewable energy in the city to date;
and much more.
Wu has authored at least fourteen ordinances that have become law, reshaping what’s possible in the city of Boston and demonstrating her ability to build coalitions around a bold, urgent vision of Boston for everyone.
“We’ve won some big fights in City Hall over the past ten years, delivering changes that had been called impossible. But there’s a lot more to do to tackle our housing crisis, transform our schools, and create opportunity for every family as we recover from this pandemic,” said Michelle Wu.
With just under one month until Election Day, as the candidates go up on air, Wu will be using digital, TV, radio and print ads to reach Bostonians and share her vision of bold leadership to build a city for everyone. She will also continue to organize in every neighborhood and community, with a team of five organizers and a large distributed organizing and volunteer program to connect in every neighborhood.
