New spot “Path” addresses the need for expanding inclusive growth and economic opportunity to combat Baltimore’s crime emergency and to recover from COVID-19.
BALTIMORE, MD – Today, former Obama administration official and Democratic mayoral candidate Mary Miller will release a new ad, “Path.” The ad shares Mary’s vision of expanding inclusive growth and economic opportunity to address Baltimore’s crime emergency and to rebuild Baltimore’s economy differently after the COVID-19 crisis.
“Baltimore’s going to need a strong, experienced leader to recover from the Coronavirus, and reduce violent crime,” says Mary Miller. “As Mayor, I’ll give Commissioner Harrison the support he needs to reform the police department. And, we need to show our young people a real path to success in Baltimore. We don’t just have a crime problem, we have an opportunity problem, too. We can change Baltimore, if we change how the city is run.”
Baltimore is consumed by a crisis of violence. Mary will take accountability and bring all the players together to scale proven strategies, grow economic opportunity and address structural racism and inequity to finally get things done.
Mary was appointed by President Obama in the peak of a national crisis to lead our country’s economic recovery. She knows how to tackle complex problems. In Baltimore, she has been working to get money flowing into neighborhoods that have been left out for far too long, and helping women and people of color start small businesses. Mary knows that government can be a powerful force for creating economic opportunity, and she knows that is what is needed in Baltimore now more than ever.
“Path” will be on TV and cable starting Monday, Mary 4 as part of the Miller Campaign’s TV ad buy. The campaign will air ads through Election Day on June 2.
“Path” can be viewed here.
