Mike Ross Closes With Substance

He posts a series of videos discussing key issues in the campaign’s final days.

Mike Ross may be best known in the mayoral campaign for a bit of fun—his terrific running-through-the-streets-of-Boston ad—but I have to give him credit: he’s running (so to speak) on real substance.

He’s also made terrific use of today’s multimedia opportunities to reach an audience. Again, the most attention-getting was a tear-jerking video discussing his parents, but beyond that—where most of us in the news media rarely tread—has been real issue-oriented stuff.

So I think it’s worth pointing you to a series of videos Ross is releasing today, in which he makes his closing argument before the Tuesday preliminary by simply telling you what he believes on five major issues. They are (appropriately) more broad-vision than detailed, but if you want ’em, those details are available at his website.

Here’s the video on transportation; the links to the others are below.

    Glad to see somebody in the media talking about this. Mike Ross actually opened with substance too, and has been talking about substantive issues throughout his campaign (even while running through the city in his fun ad).

    I’ve followed the campaign closely for months, and it has been amazing to see how many of his early ideas other candidates have taken on. Sometimes they even come close to admitting it – I think the most common phrase I’ve heard from other candidates in forums is “I agree with Mike Ross.”

    Substance is essential in our next mayor. Mike Ross has it. He has shown that on the city council and in this campaign. Let’s vote for Mike Ross on Tuesday and show that substance matters to the voters of Boston!
