Henry for Mayor campaign releases new ad: “Falling”
Spot highlights Hughes’s record of raising taxes while cutting vital services
Today the Tom Henry for Mayor campaign released a new TV ad, “Falling.” The spot highlights Paula Hughes’s record of raising taxes on residents while cutting vital services like bridge maintenance and snow removal — as well as her recent statement calling leaf pickup a “luxury” she would consider eliminating.
“While Hughes was raising taxes she was also cutting vital services,” said Henry for Mayor campaign manager Justin Schall. “Hughes cut bridge maintenance, snow removal, and now she says picking up leaves is a ‘luxury’ that she might eliminate, forcing residents to pay for it on their own. These basic services keep our roads safe and prevent our homes, streets and businesses from flooding. If Paula Hughes thinks city services are a luxury, we can’t trust her with Fort Wayne’s future.”
The ad will begin airing on all major Fort Wayne stations starting today.
