Dan Welch has his first ad up for his Mayoral campaign. See it here:
Welch’s nice introductory ad will hit the air and cable waves Tuesday. Clearly a few bucks spent on the production quality. If you know us, you know that we like spots where the candidate speaks directly to the camera, but we’re sure there are more coming.
And this is a necessary re-introductory spot for a candidate who not everyone knows. Not that any of the other candidates – save the Mayor – are household names, frankly.
But, first volley for Welch. We’ll see when others respond.
Did you catch the OWH story about Creighton economist Dr. Ernie Goss’s report on the Keystone XL Pipeline? His study concluded that the pipe would be worth $2 Billion in economic benefits for Nebraska. That’s BILLION, with a B.
And after a close and detailed examination of Goss’s study, Jane Kleeb, of the London School of Economics dismissed it.
Oh, wait. Scratch that.
Kleeb neither possesses a degree in economics, NOR did she even READ Goss’s report!
Because, Kleeb says, it is based on all of TransCanada’s data.
So did Goss sit on his hands and let Kleeb dismiss his study like she tosses an FFA jacket into the corner?
No. No he did not. He took to…The Facebook!
Perhaps some of you have read Jane Fleming Kleeb ‘s comments on my recently completed study of the Keystone XL pipeline. I would certainly appreciate it if she would 1) read the study before commenting on it, 2) have the courtesy of sending me her comments and criticisms of my study, 3) be more civil and professional in her comments and conduct, 4) provide a basis for her own (economic conclusions). The public does not benefit from such one sided arguments as those conducted by Ms. Kleeb.
While I think it is somewhat irrelevant, would you (Jane) mind telling FB friends if you have received any income from any politically connected group or non-profit group?
Ms. Kleeb I used the assumptions of the Cornell group that you think is “right on target.” Also the Washington Post used the same assumptions but I would certainly not use data from a newspaper article to support my position or my analysis.
Again Ms. Jane Fleming Kleeb , I do not base by analyses on newspaper articles so you are correct, I am completely out-of-touch with the political machinations of groups such as yours and those in opposition to you. I am an academic that relies on more thoroughly vetted data.
And BOOM goes the dynamite.
(We can just HEAR Jane harumphing and crossing her arms now.)
And for those of you still paying attention, here is your liberal ad AGAINST Chuck Hagel for SecDef:
Hey, don’t look at us.
