Detroit mayoral write in candidate Mike Duggan has unveiled his first 60-second radio ad that began airing on stations across Metro Detroit starting Thursday, July 4th.
The ad features several DMC employees who witnessed first hand Duggan's turnaround of the troubled medical center. The ad recalls the fear and uncertainty workers were feeling at the time Duggan was hired because the DMC had lost $500 million in the prior five years and was preparing to shut down Detroit Receiving Hospital and Hutzel Hospital. The employees then go on to talk about how quickly Duggan restored confidence by working directly with employees to bring the DMC back from the brink of bankruptcy.
The ad concludes with the employees - all Detroit residents - expressing their happiness that they will be able to vote for Duggan for mayor as a write in candidate.
