Pell campaign, CDTC-endorsed candidate for Governor, releases first TV ad

Clay Pell for Governor
On Tu‌es‌da‌y, I had the privilege of taking the stage at the first debate of this campaign and laying out my plan to make Rhode Island ready for tom‌orr‌ow. If you tuned in, you clearly saw that I am the only candidate with a real plan -- one that I can put into action beginning on my first day as governor.

As my campaign jumps into high gear, I wanted you -- as one of my strongest supporters -- to be the first to see my first TV ad. This ad helps Rhode Islanders to get to know me better -- by hearing about my values, my experience, and my plan.

Watch the video today!

I'm running for governor because I believe that working families need help now. That is why I am calling for an immediate raise in the minimum wage. It's why I oppose changing the estate tax and giving a tax break to the wealthiest among us at the expense of programs that serve low-income Rhode Islanders.

I'll put our state back on course by fixing our infrastructure; by advocating for a women's equality agenda; by ensuring all Rhode Islanders have access to a world-class education through my Hope Scholars and Hope Internship programs; and by ending the culture of cynicism, cronyism, and pay-to-play politics that has bedeviled our state for too long.

This ad is the first step in getting our message out to Rhode Islanders. And I know I can count on you to help me now, through the Sep‌temb‌er 9 primary election, and beyond.

Thank you so much for your support. Together, we will make Rhode Island ready for tomorrow.
