Air Virginia

Virginia is up with her first television spot of the campaign, a series of black and white photographs and a script that understandably stresses her strongest suit: her Birmingham arrest.

Given how little money she has, it’s no shock that her campaign won’t say how much they’re planning to spend airing the ad. Here’s the script:

Who would know, that for the girl, being arrested and going to jail at seventeen would change her life, and ours, forever? Would it matter, to have a mayor whose heart contained that much determination – whose intelligence, turned hope into action. Others talk – she listens, builds, demands. Affordable housing? Jobs? She’s done it. Imagine the difference courage could make. Imagine a great mayor. C. Virginia Fields, Mayor.
