The Fresno Bee reports that a new ad will be airing on local radio featuring former Mayor of Fresno Alan Autry (Republican). The ad also features comedian Will Durst.
You can listen to the ad here.
The ad touches on a few key points:
-Pro-central valley, local ad, local pride.
-Touches on ways that the media and the population of LA and the Bay area frequently crap on the valley, and the way politicians have been fighting to take the money away.
-Talks about the very real brain drain, as young people who want real careers have no choice but to look for opportunity elsewhere.
-Uses a well known (locally), and Republican, spokesperson .
