McGinty airs bio spot

Published by James O'Toole on .

Katie McGinty was to air the first television commercials of the governor's race.  It's a positive biographical spot highlighting her background as the daughter of a Philadelphia police officer.  According to the campaign, it was scheduled to air Tuesday night, bracketing the State of the Union address on CNN and MSNBC.

Amid displays of old family photos, the former DEP chief says,

"I grew up in a household where hard work was the order of the day. My dad was a policeman and my mom worked nights in a restaurant. And all ten of us kids understood the value of hard work. We had a good middle class life.

My concern today is that hard working men and women are not able to offer that same promise for their children. That’s why we need good jobs, with good pay, that provide a bright opportunity and future for Pennsylvanians.''
