(Toms River, NJ – October 16, 2018) Today EDF Action launched a new television ad, “Cost,” targeting Congressman Tom MacArthur’s troubling history of siding with special interests and big polluters over New Jersey families.
The ad is part of a previously announced $1 million joint effort by LCV Victory Fund, EDF Action, Environment America Action Fund and Clean Water Action to defeat pro-polluter Congressman Tom MacArthur in New Jersey’s 3rd Congressional District.
“The people of this district have seen the impact of toxic pollution first-hand, yet Congressman MacArthur has voted consistently to put polluters ahead of protections for his district,” said Joe Bonfiglio, President of EDF Action. “We are proud to be working with local and national public-health advocates to hold Tom MacArthur accountable for his troubling record.”
The groups are partnering on television ads, digital and door-to-door canvassing until Election Day to ensure voters know that MacArthur sides with corporate polluters over public health. LCV Victory Fund’s ad, “Here”launched September 25. Environment America Action Fund launched digital ads in September, which can be viewed here.
The $500,000 ad buy will start airing today and will run through Election Day.
