Rebuild New York Now campaigns for infrastructure awareness

Rebuild New York Now, a broad-based coalition, which includes The Business Council, is seeking to raise public awareness about the issues impacting New York State’s infrastructure. The coalition has released television and radio advertisements entitled “Tipping Point” as part of an overall media campaign that will run statewide and highlight New York’s infrastructure crisis.

The 30-second TV and 60-second radio spots were released at an Albany press conference along with local elected officials, members of organized labor and private businesses. This diverse coalition stood together to highlight the state of disrepair of New York State’s infrastructure and call for a renewed commitment to infrastructure investment.

“Tipping Point” TV Script:

New York is facing a crisis. Transportation systems are falling apart. Another harsh winter is here. New York drivers are dodging pot holes if they’re lucky, facing expensive repairs if they’re not. We’re sending our children to school on poor roads. Fixing our infrastructure will create tens of thousands of jobs, protect our families and revitalize New York. Visit rebuild New York now dot org.

“Tipping Point” Radio Script:

New York is facing a crisis. Transportation systems are falling apart. Another harsh winter is here. New York drivers are dodging pot holes if they’re lucky, and facing expensive repairs if they’re not. Even worse, we’re sending our children to school on these poor roads and bridges every day. It’s dangerous. Unacceptable. And, needs to change. New Yorkers are demanding real infrastructure investment that protects our families and revitalizes our state. And, studies show that for every billion spent on infrastructure repair over 28,000 jobs are created. That’s 28,000 good paying jobs to stimulate New York’s economy. And build safer roads and bridges for you and your family. Jobs. Safety. Infrastructure. Visit rebuild N Y now dot org and learn how we can fix New York’s infrastructure crisis.
