New Ad Campaign Reminds Washington of Recent Campaign Promises
Jul. 5, 2011 (Business Wire) -- As public attention focuses on deficit-reduction negotiations, Public Notice launches its fourth ad campaign, this time wrapping Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) buses and bus shelters to drive home the organization's message of "don't raise debt ceiling without cutting spending." Downtown bus routes will run the ads for one month.
Gretchen Hamel, executive director of Public Notice, said the following:
"This shouldn't be a surprise to anyone in Washington. Public Notice is just echoing Americans' demands for fiscal sanity – even – or maybe especially – in the seemingly safe spending harbor of Washington, D.C.
"And all those people who want to keep spending? They'll look out their K Street windows and see these buses rolling by.
"This is another step in our ongoing campaign to hold members of Congress to the promise they made to their constituents to make the tough choices and rein in spending. They will know the American people won't forget."
With less than five weeks until the August 2nd deadline, President Obama gave a stern warning to Congress last week, saying, "There's no point in putting it off. We've got to get this done." All opinion polls point to the need to cut spending. Let's hope Congress follows suit and gets our nation back on sound fiscal footing.
