McGinn TV ad: “I believe in plowing snow”

Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn is up with a new TV ad making a pitch to voters on what he stands for — from “preschool for every kid” to “stopping coal trains” to “plowing snow.”

In the 30-second spot, McGinn, standing in front of a city skyline, faces the camera and makes his case personally. That’s a contrast with Murray’s latest ad, in which he doesn’t speak, relying instead on a pack of high-profile endorsers like former Gov. Chris Gregoire and former King County Executive Ron Sims.

While it’s not a point of controversy in the mayor’s race, McGinn’s reference to “plowing snow” seeks to remind voters the city has not suffered a repeat of the 2009 blizzard — and much criticized city response — that helped doom then-Mayor Greg Nickels.
