Arin Sime is on the air – sort of.
The 24th Senate District Libertarian candidate released his first campaign television commercial yesterday – on the popular video website YouTube.
The spot plays up issues raised by Sime in his campaign in the 24th and features voters from the district who support Sime’s platform – including Crozet homeowners Tina and John Munchmeyer, who express displeasure with rising property taxes in the commercial; Skip Plitt and his son, Austin, Albemarle County hunters and Second Amendment advocates; Earlysville mom Silvia Barrett, who is active in the homeschool movement; and Gerard Labrecque of Staunton, who were threatened with eminent domain in 2006 in relation to a home that they are renovating.
The commercial was filmed by Tugboat Media LLC and will be running on television stations in the 24th during the final week of the campaign.
