Today, Conservation Ohio announces a second round of digital ads with a new $20,000 buy calling out Mike DeWine’s history of fighting against environmental protections. This is a follow up to a five-figure digital ad campaign that launched in August.
The ads highlight Mike DeWine’s track record of standing up for big polluters and corporations instead of Ohioans and our children on critical environmental issues, including clean water, clean air, and the Rover Pipeline, which spilled millions of gallons of drilling fluid on pristine wetlands in eastern Ohio.
“We’ve knocked on over 60,000 doors, and are on track to knock over 250,000 doors to support environmental champion Rich Cordray, and we’re ensuring Ohio voters know about DeWine’s damaging environmental record,” said Aryeh Alex, State Director of Conservation Ohio. “These digital ads show Ohioans the truth behind DeWine’s action and will send a clear message about where DeWine’s priorities lie.”
With a focus on the impact of these environmental issues on the current and future generations, the ads show the truth behind DeWine’s actions, because he has shown he is beholden to corporate polluters and donors over the health of Ohioans. In the last year, we’ve seen algae blooms plague our waterways, a debate in the legislature to roll back our clean energy standards, over 20 spills by the Rover Pipeline, and aging water infrastructure across the state. These issues will need to be addressed, and Rich Cordray is the only candidate who has plans to move us in the right direction.
Conservation Ohio’s ads will appear statewide on Facebook, targeted to voters who remain undecided about the election. The ads are expected to reach hundreds of thousands of voters multiple times over the coming weeks.
