“Working People” touts working class roots, focus on economic anxiety
“This Congress is so out of touch.”
That is the message of a new television ad by Lori Trahan, Democrat for Congress in the Third District, that will premiere during tonight’s World Series television broadcast. This is Trahan’s first general election spot and her fourth TV spot of the campaign.
Called “Working People,” the spot features Trahan talking to the camera about growing up in a working-class family and the struggle to make ends meet. Her father was an iron worker and her mother cleaned homes to support their family. Trahan did her part by waitressing at the Owl Diner while balancing honors classes and varsity sports at Lowell High School.
Trahan said too many families share that same economic anxiety today and that is why she is running for Congress — “to stand up for working people.”
“Families struggle to pay for healthcare. Politicians don’t seem to know or care,” Trahan said in her ad. “They would make healthcare even more expensive for seniors and for people with pre-existing conditions.”
Trahan said voters have a “critical choice” to make in the Nov. 6 election.
“When Congress doesn’t work, families like the one I grew up in pay the price. We need leaders who will fight for economic priorities like affordable, universal healthcare,” Trahan said. “I will use all of the hard-earned lessons from my life to get things done for the people of this district.”
Following tonight’s spot during Game One of the World Series, the ad will begin running tomorrow on broadcast.
