Carol Boigon today unveiled what she says is the first TV ad by any of the Denver mayoral candidates.

“Mayor Hickenlooper went to great heights for this city,” Boigon says, sitting in an airplane with a parachute strapped to her back.

Unlike Hickenlooper, she does not jump.

“The ad showcases Carol as someone who is able to take on serious issues without taking herself too seriously,” said Mark Henson, her campaign manager. “And as the first mayoral candidate to go on the air, she is also demonstrating that she is serious about winning.”
