2/09/12 Alliance Launches High-Speed Rail Radio CampaignFebruary 10th, 2012
The California Alliance for Jobs (www. rebuildca.org) kicked off its radio campaign in support of the high-speed rail project in Sacramento and the Bay Area. The 60-second radio spot began airing earlier this week and is one of several ads running in the coming months that discuss the benefits of high-speed rail.
The radio spot is narrated by political satirist Will Durst who reminds Californians about the importance of having vision, creating jobs and building “something momentous for our future generation.”
“The high-speed rail project is one of those transformative projects that will have as much of an impact on California and its economy as the railroads and the State Water Project,” said Executive Director Jim Earp. “It will produce thousands of jobs, boost the economy, provide a greener and faster mode of transportation and will help California meet its growing transportation needs.”
The radio advertisement is running several times a day on 15 stations in Sacramento and the Bay Area and is expected to reach 2.6 million people by Sunday. To listen to the radio spot, click here. A full transcript of the radio spot can be viewed here.
