On Friday, Oct. 19, the campaign team behind Garnet Lewis for Michigan State Senate, District 26, released a TV advertisement called "Getting Things Done."
The lighthearted advertisement was written, directed, audio taped and cast entirely by volunteers for the campaign, and features Lewis herself promoting her message. The production team, Good Fruit Video of Lansing, shot and edited the advertisement.
Lewis, narrating the scenes in the ad, asks a series of "What if?" questions, culminating in the question, "What if your Michigan State Senator worked for you?"
"The ad supports the campaign's messaging that focuses on Lewis's intention as State Senator to never make empty promises, but work hard to get things done for Michigan's people," said Lewis' campaign team. "As a career educator, not a career politician, her focus is on restoring Michigan's public education system to competitive levels, better research and answers for protecting our waters, making healthcare accessible, rebuilding Michigan's infrastructure as the four drivers of economic growth for the state."
The ad offers a contrast with opponent Aric Nesbitt's campaign in terms of its funding and support.
Lewis' campaign team says that all of Lewis' campaign advertisements and materials in this race have been paid for by individual donors, not by corporate and special interest PACs.
