Wiley Makes a Bold Statement in New Ad Titled “Big Moment”
New York — Today, New York City mayoral candidate Maya Wiley released her newest campaign ad titled “Big Moment.” The :30 second ad outlines the need for New York City to elect a mayor that truly understands the crisis we’re in, but has a transformative and bold vision that will recover everyone from this crisis equitably. As mayor, Maya will invest in our schools and communities, make affordable housing affordable, and reshape the New York Police Department while keeping New Yorkers safe.
“In the midst of growing momentum, Maya has proved herself to be the only progressive who can win this race and the only one who will build a better and more equitable city for all New Yorkers,” said Campaign Manager Maya Rupert. “Maya has created a coalition across all 5 boroughs– and she has the courage to create real change, right now.”
Script: “Big Moment”
New York, we have a big choice to make. We can elect another ally of the developers, the establishment, and the police union or we can elect someone with the courage to take them on!
Hold developers’ feet to fire while supporting families still struggling to make rent and put an end to the lie that says we can’t have public safety without police abuse.
I am Maya Wiley, I have that courage and I’m asking for your vote.
