Curry Releases Platform, Web Video
It's a close race for Marion County Prosecutor. Terry Curry is slugging it out with Mark Massa to become Marion County's Prosecuting Attorney.
Yesterday, Curry announced his comprehensive campaign platform, and, from what I've read, it looks very strong. It's specific and gives a voter a pretty clear idea of what a Curry Administration will look and feel like.
I'm sure this comes to no surprise to any of you, but I happen to believe Terry's the man for the job, and I wholeheartedly support him. His campaign has hit the ground and has been working the neighborhoods going door-to-door and meeting voters. That is the way to win elections, yes. But, it's also important to put your name in the papers and on the television sets. In this way, I just hope that this late flurry by Curry isn't too late.
Massa has had at least three television commercials hitting the air. They have been slick and well-produced. Maybe they are running at times I haven't been watching television, but I truly haven't seen a whole lot of them until today. It was the ad where Governor Daniels is shilling for Massa. Daniels clearly wants Massa to win this race so that a Curry-led Prosecutor's Office can't investigate state government.
Voters are voting now, and Curry's campaign told me today that there is an aggressive paid media campaign on the way. We all know that Mayor Greg Ballard didn't get on television until the last two weeks of the campaign in 2007, and he won. That was a weird year. I'm not sure I agree with waiting this long to run ads, but I don't have the experience of running a campaign like his campaign. My record is only 1-2 as a campaign manager (and my other candidate quit early to go to law school), so take my advice for what it's worth.
I'm anxiously awaiting the first Curry for Prosecutor TV ad! For now, here's Terry's web video. It introduces you to Curry and takes you into some issues he feels are important. Good stuff.
