Citywide Billboards Preview Campaign: “A State Legislator Hiding a Big Secret”
Albuquerque – Residents across Bernalillo County are talking about billboards previewing a new campaign to hold legislators accountable. On Sunday, a citywide digital billboard campaign previews ProgressNow New Mexico’s campaign to highlight a state legislator who hid a secret encounter from constituents.
10 billboards across the city feature the preview today:
On Monday, the billboards will convert to new boards naming the legislator and the secret, and the launch of a new website and campaign to share information with voters.
“Voters have a right to know when their elected officials misbehave, especially when those elected officials present a very polished public image but behave much differently when they think no one is watching,” says Patrick Davis of ProgressNowNM. “If a candidate asks for our vote, they have an obligation to tell us who we are really voting for.”
