VIDEO: Hancock releases pointed TV spot–calling out DPS for failed schools

“Every morning, we drive 18 miles across town to East High School, because our neighborhood school is one of the many across Denver that are failing,” begins Denver Mayoral candidate Michael Hancock’s new television ad.

“I’m Michael Hancock and I’m running for mayor because this is wrong,” he says. “A high quality school should never be a luxury. And no neighborhood in Denver should ever be left behind.”

The commercial began airing Friday. You can see his education plan here.
