Fung First to TV in Governor's Race

Fung is first to the airwaves in the increasingly-heated governor's race in Rhode Island.

Touting his record in Cranston, Cranston Mayor Allan W. Fung, also a candidate for Governor of Rhode Island, will launch television ads this week — the first candidate to take to the TV airwaves this election season.

The Fung Campaign ad, entitled “Hire,” begins running today as part of a substantial media buy on local network and cable television stations and makes the case why the voters of Rhode Island should hire Allan Fung as their next governor to turn around Rhode Island, according to a release.

Fung lists his achievements including reforming retiree pensions, moving new employees of two major unions into 401(k)’s, cutting government spending, consolidating services, balancing budgets with no tax increase for three straight years, and the creation of more than one thousand new, private sector jobs in just his first two terms in office, the release stated.  

The ad concludes by declaring, “That’s how it’s done! And he’ll do the same for Rhode Island."

He may not have raised the taxes however the revalues went up therefore we get a increase, just saying! Good luck to him! I welcome a change!

If he loses for Governor, he gets to finish his term as Mayor.

Please people vet your candidates. Creating a 1000 jobs as claimed could have been created by other means and not by Fungs policies. Too many candidates claimed to do this and do that. The average voter never gives true attention to a candidates record to see if it is reality or make believe? They flip the lever just to get voting out of the way. We got Govenor Gump that way. Lets make sure we know who is running? See if we can elect a Govenor who can get RI out of the top spots in National worst catagories and more in the top spots National best catagories.

That goes for RI Senators and Reps. Also those GA reps that really do nothing for the state. Paiva-Weed...hint..hint
