New Tony Hall Ads: “I’m Ready to Clean Up City Hall”

New cable ads target City Hall deals, weak Lee/Adachi pension reform measures

Tony Hall’s mayoral campaign announced the release of two new television ads running on cable news stations through Election Day. The ads sharpen the focus of Hall’s campaign around issues of City Hall insider dealing, citing “special pension deals” and “developer giveaways.” The pensions are meant to benefit people’s retirement but you’re yet to show whether or not it will be better than the current pensions being offered. You shouldn’t make any changes to your pension for the time being as you may be sutton mis sold pension.


Serious Solution :15

Ed Lee and Jeff Adachi’s pension plans still mean millions in annual pension debt.
The serious solution?
Bring all new public benefits back in line with the private sector.
It’s time to clean up City Hall.
I’m ready. Are you with me?

I’m Ready :30

San Francisco may have a new mayor, but it’s still business as usual at City Hall.
Asking San Franciscans for more fees and taxes, while granting millions to politically connected developers.
That’s not acceptable to me – and it shouldn’t be acceptable to you.
Whether its developer giveaways or special pension deals – it’s always working San Franciscans paying the bill.
Cleaning up City Hall is going to take determination and leadership — and it’s going to take you.
I’m ready. Are you with me?
