Democratic Senate candidate David Nachbar is hitting the airwaves tomorrow with his first ad in his race against state Sen. James Alesi, R-Perinton, in a district that covers most of eastern Monroe County.As with the first ad from fellow Democratic candidate Rick Dollinger, Nachbar’s ad was produced by Manhattan ad man Jimmy Siegel — who did the slick ads for Eliot Spitzer’s gubernatorial campaign in 2006 and was brought on last year to do Hillary Clinton’s presidential ads.
He also did the successful ads for Democrat Darrel Aubertine’s upset Senate victory in the North Country earlier this year and ads for Sen. Andrea Stewart-Cousins in Westchester.
The mix of black and white and color images with patriotic music is Siegel’s style and are prominent in Nachbar’s ad, which states:
“If Albany won’t change things for us, we’ll change Albany. David Nachbar is going to do for Rochester what’s he’s done for business: create jobs, create hope and create a future. Because David Nachbar wants his kids to stay here too.”
It ends with: “David Nachbar, maybe it takes someone from business to mean business.”
