VIDEO: Boigon unveils first mayoral TV ad of the season

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.”

Scot Kersgaard has been managing editor of a political newspaper, editor and co-owner of a ski town newspaper, executive editor of eight high-tech magazines (where he worked with current Apple CEO Tim Cook), deputy press secretary to a U.S. Senator, and an outdoors columnist at the Rocky Mountain News. He has an English degree from the University of Washington. He was awarded a fellowship to study internet journalism at the University of Maryland's Knight Center for Specialized Journalism. He was student body president in college. He spends his free time hiking and skiing.
