Democrats have begun airing a new TV ad blasting Republican State Senate candidate Jean Stanfield for voting against a middle class tax rebate while serving in the State Assembly in 2020.
Stanfield faces State Sen. Dawn Addiego (D-Evesham) in the politically-competitive 8th district.
The ad features two firefighters slamming Stanfield for her vote.
Script: “I’ve been a firefighter for 12 years. $500 could be good for my family. So, I’m pissed off that Jean Stanfield voted against cutting taxes for people like me. Instead of 500 bucks for us, Stanfield supported lower taxes for millionaires. Come on — like those guys need even more? Here’s the proof: cut taxes for working people by $500. Jean Stanfield voted no. I get it. The millionaires paid for her political campaigns, but how does that help us? It’s simple. Jean Stanfield doesn’t give a damn about working people.”
The $500 rebate was approved last year as part of a deal to fund the millionaires tax, allowing families making less than $150,000 annually to receive a rebate check.
The ad will run on local cable stations and on broadcast TV in the Philadelphia market. It is paid for by the campaign funds of Addiego and her two running mates, Mark Natale and Alison Eckel.
