Connecticut corrections officers have taken to the airwaves. A new television commercial called “Proud to Serve,” which features 20 front-line correction officers who are members of Council 4 Locals 387, 391 and 1565, which represent 5,000 employees of the state Department of Correction. Here’s the commercial:
The speaker at the end is John Thompson, who works at Webster Correctional Institution in Cheshire.
The timing is good, as the legislature is coming back into session on Wednesday, and both the Democratic leadership and the governor will be eying spending cuts. So what do you think? Is it effective? Do they make their case well?
The ad will run between now and January 16th.
