Wagner ad: Vietnam, public service

Published by Tim McNulty on .

Sorry for the delay in posts -- some kind of bug is keeping me from work today, which sadly is one of the few things Kris Letang and I have in common -- but here's the new ad from the Jack Wagner mayoral campaign.

Jim O'Toole mentioned it in the Sunday paper:

The commercial recounts his injury and extended convalescence after a tour of duty in which seven of the 12 members of his Marine unit were killed.

"When you survive something like that, you realize how valuable life is,'' Mr. Wagner says in the spot. "It is one of the reasons that I believe I am in public service.''

This was the second ad aired by the Wagner campaign. Mr. Peduto has broadcast one spot. All of them have been positive, concentrating on the candidate's biographies.
