Progressive Kick, Michigan Nurses Spend $660K Vs. Gov. Rick Snyder

Michigan nurses worry another four years of Gov. Rick Snyder would keep the state in intensive care.

That’s why they’ve teamed up with Progressive Kick to get out the vote against the governor on Election Day through $660,000 in online, satellite TV and Pandora Radio ads.

The ad, currently circulating across computer screens and satellite TV statewide, opens with Sandy Raymond, RN, explaining why extending Snyder’s tenure would merely benefit fat-cat corporations not Michiganders.

“While at Gateway, he denied equal-paying jobs to women. As governor, he raised taxes on working parents, cut millions from schools and gave huge tax giveaways to wealthy corporations,” Raymond says.

Notes Progressive Kick President Joshua Grossman: “He’s a former CEO. Some CEOs are enlightened. Unfortunately Snyder’s the type who understands the needs of corporations more than those of everyday Michiganders barely crawling out of the worst recession since the Great Depression. It’s time for Michigan to elect a governor who better understands real people.

The 30-second spot targeted toward low-propensity voting Democrats and swing voters ends with a plea for viewers to join the nurses to “make a plan” to vote on November 4th. Experience shows that citizens who commit to voting are more likely to actually show up at the polls on Election Day.
