New Campaign Ad to Air on Local Networks Leading up to Election Day
Baltimore mayoral candidate Bob Wallace, the first ever independent candidate to be on the ballot, released a new television advertisement, “Love Story,” on Tuesday, October 27, 2020. The ad is narrated by Carolyn Wallace, Bob’s wife of 42 years. Together, Bob and Carolyn Wallace have raised five children and have eight grandchildren.
“I am honored to have the love and support of my wife and entire family as I have campaigned over the past months to become the next mayor of Baltimore,” Wallace said. “We are at a pivotal time as we decide the fate of our city. We must work to end violent crime in our city, bring new jobs and opportunities to our residents and improve our schools so that our children have a fighting chance to compete and succeed in the future. We can make a real change in our city, but we must put people over profits, people over politics and people over party.”
In the new campaign spot, Carolyn Wallace, who grew up in East Baltimore, talks about the special qualities that Bob Wallace would bring to the role of mayor as a fighter for those in need, a family man who understands the challenges that children and families face, and as an entrepreneur who can bring 100,000 new jobs and opportunities to Baltimore for all of its residents.
The 60-second “Love Story” TV spot is the latest in a series of Wallace for Mayor TV ads that will air on local TV networks in Baltimore. Wallace’s ads are available on his Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, and Twitter pages.
