Portland, OR] – Tina Kotek’s campaign released a new TV ad focusing on her vision to address issues of safety and livability in our communities.
In the ad, Kotek discusses her plans to address homelessness by enforcing the laws on the books, increasing public safety funding, and connecting people with treatment. Tina’s track record of leadership and comprehensive, forward-looking plans have earned praise from editorial boards across the state, including The Oregonian, Eugene Weekly, and Bend Source.
The ad also calls out Republican Christine Drazan for walking off her taxpayer-funded job as a state representative, which “killed many bills, including $120 million for homeless shelters and affordable housing project that then-Speaker Tina Kotek has proposed.”
Here is the full transcript of the new ad:
Nobody in Oregon would say let’s keep doing exactly what we’ve been doing. Certainly not me.
I called for a homelessness state of emergency nearly three years ago, while Kate Brown did nothing and Christine Drazan killed efforts to make our streets safer.
I’ll enforce the laws on the books, increase public safety safety and get folks connected to treatment.
We certainly don’t need a red state takeover to clean up the damn trash.
I’m Tina Kotek and I’ll move our state forward the right way.
