6th Congressional District Candidate Grasso Hits Airwaves with “Family First” Commercial
Candidate for the 6th Congressional District and Burr Ridge Mayor Gary Grasso released his first campaign commercial introducing himself and his “family first” values. The spot will air on both digital channels and cable zones within the 6th Congressional District.
“The spot highlights the values taught to me by my parents, and the values from my marriage to Janet for 43 years,” explained Grasso.
“We have taken those values and passed them along to our children and in turn, our six grandchildren. I believe the voters need a congressman who understands and lives by the true principles of family values.”
The transcript of the “Family First” commercial is as follows:
“My parents taught me family first, freedom always, and pursue the American dream by working hard and using your God given talents.
My wife, Janet and I, have passed these lessons on to our six children.
We are proud that they are teaching these lessons to their children.
As your Congressman, I will take these values to Washington.
I’m Gary Grasso, I approve this message because Washington has forgotten these values.”
