In Joe Torsella’s latest thirty-second spot, titled “Opportunity”, the Democratic nominee for State Treasurer outlines his plan to provide a college savings account for all children in Pennsylvania.
The video begins with Torsella stating that, “If we don’t change direction, only the rich will be able to afford college,” Torsella begins.
He then follows this by explaining what he plans to accomplish with his plan to make college more affordable.
“I’m Joe Torsella and my plan opens a college savings account for every child born in Pennsylvania,” he states. “Studies show that this makes it four times likelier that a child will go to college. That helps parents and it opens opportunity for every child. Without raising taxes.”
The advertisement concludes with a narration voice over. “Joe Torsella. The right kind of Joe. For State Treasurer.”
Torsella is running against Republican nominee Otto Voit in the November 8th general election.
