At our Actors Happy Hour, APP-NW introduced an effort to educate local candidates running for office about hiring local talent for their campaign ads.
We distributed sheets with a simple one-line pledge candidates could sign stating that they would hire local talent for their ads:
“I, ____________________, pledge to my constituents that I will only use local talent for all my campaign advertising for the 2014 elections season.”
Click the graphic to the right to download a copy of the pledge, and take it to the people running to represent you in this year’s election!
APP-NW will publish on our web site the names of any candidates returning a signed pledge.
Don’t know who is running to represent you in the coming election?
