Bailey Campaign Releases Television Ad

Today the Jules Bailey for Mayor campaign released their television ad as Portlanders prepare to receive their ballots this weekend.

“Like the rest of our campaign, this ad is a grassroots effort,” said Commissioner Bailey. “Our campaign is not funded by big corporations and developers, it’s funded by real people and so I wanted them in the ad with me.”

The ad, “Together for Portland”, includes about 35 adults and children holding signs in support of issues they care about like “Good Jobs”, “Equality”, and “A Home for Everyone”.

The first clip features Gwen Sullivan, president of the Portland Association of Teachers that has endorsed Bailey. She talks about how Bailey grew up in Southeast Portland and worked his way through college to become an economist and legislator, “He has the right experience to build an economy that works for all of Portland.”

The second clip features Multnomah County Chair Deborah Kafoury who notes that “As County Commissioner, Jules is already finding smart solutions to our housing crisis to make Portland affordable.”

County Commissioner Loretta Smith speaks out for Jules in the third clip, “Jules is an advocate for equity and justice. He’ll ensure we have a city where everyone feels safe.”

The ad scrolls through major endorsements Bailey has received including Portland Firefighter’s Association, Sierra Club, Oregon League of Conservation Voters, Portland Police Association, and artPAC..

Jules Bailey’s grassroots campaign has raised over $140,000 from over 1,000 donors, mostly by holding house parties across the city.

The campaign is in the process of doing 100 living room house parties across the city. The house parties have been an important part of Bailey’s grassroots strategy, gathering volunteers to knock on doors and make phone calls on behalf of the campaign.
