A new ad from The Committee to Elect Janet S. Anderson in PA’s 49th Senate District will begin to air on both broadcast and network television in Erie Wednesday.
The 30-second ad focuses on Anderson’s dedication to job creation in northwestern PA. Anderson points to her almost three-decade-long career in economic development, throughout which she worked as a staffer in the offices of both former Gov. Tom Ridge and retiring Sen. Jane Earll (R-Erie), whom she hopes to replace.
During the ad, the state Senate candidate said, “Everyone running for office talks about creating jobs. The difference is that I’ve spent 26 years of my career helping local businesses create those jobs. Children need to be able to come back to Erie and make a living equal to what they would make in other places.”
Anderson was the first state candidates to appear in a television ad this cycle when her campaign released a 30-second bio spot in May. Anderson used her airtime in that ad, as well as in this most recent ad, to emphasize her desire to pull away from partisan politics.
“I love to help people. It doesn’t matter what party they’re affiliated with. You get the job done.”
In the 49th district, which is seen as a top pick-up opportunity for Senate Dems., Anderson’s advertised commitment to bipartisanship may be vital to her success.
In July, a poll conducted by PoliticsPA revealed that our readers believe the face-off between Anderson and Dem. Sean Wiley will be the second most competitive state Senate race of the cycle, following the race for 37th district seat.
