TIFFIN, OH — An advocacy group is airing a new radio ad on Seneca County airwaves, thanking Commissioners Shayne Thomas and Holly Stacy, both Republicans, for supporting the plan to harvest wind energy in the county.
The commercial then goes on to criticize Commissioner Mike Kerschner, an independent, who is opposed to the alternative energy zone. Kerschner is running for re-election in November against Democratic challenger Cheryl Radin-Norman.
The ad, which began running on local radio stations just a few days ago, was paid for by Economic Prosperity Project, a non-profit organization out of Columbus.
It is unknown how much money the group is spending on the ad campaign.
“With all that’s wrong with politics today, Seneca County commissioners Holly Stacy and Shayne Thomas are doing what’s right!,” a woman in the commercial reads.
Another woman then jumps in and asks, “How’s that?”
“Stacy and Thomas support the alternative energy zone, which will bring millions in new revenue to our county,” the first woman replies.
“So why is Commissioner Mike Kerschner fighting against the alternative energy zone?”
“I guess Kerschner is against good jobs, better schools, and lower taxes.”
