TOM ALLON KICK STARTS 2013 MAYORAL RACE WITH FIRST TV AD
Two years before election, Allon debuts hard-hitting 30-second spot
On Election Day tomorrow, newspaper publisher and former public school teacher Tom Allon will kick start the 2013 mayoral race by debuting a 30-second television ad, blasting the lack of electoral choice in New York City. The ad entitled “Election Day”, which is running exclusively tomorrow on NY1, will also introduce Allon to voters, highlighting the fact that he is the only non-career politician currently seeking the mayoralty.
“New Yorkers should be out voting today,” said Allon. “But instead of having open and democratic elections like editorial boards and good government groups across the city demanded, the Republican and Democratic bosses once again orchestrated special elections to keep independent, reform-minded, and third-party candidates out of office.”
“As Mayor of the City of New York, I will make electoral reform and good government top priorities of my administration. If the people don’t have real choice on Election Day, our whole system of government is a sham.”
Allon’s “Election Day” ad will run throughout the day, tomorrow, November 8th on NY1.
