Shri Thanedar Launches First Television Ad


ANN ARBOR, MI – Scientist and award-winning entrepreneur Shri Thanedar’s gubernatorial campaign will debut its first television ad on Tuesday, Dec. 12, titled “Science.”

The ad highlights Thanedar’s pledge not to accept contributions from corporate special interests and introduces him as “the only scientist and the most progressive Democrat running for Governor.”

“This ad campaign is one of the ways we intend to use our significant cash on hand advantage to tell as wide an audience as possible about Shri’s inspiring life story and his progressive ideas to make education and healthcare accessible to all,” said Thanedar campaign manager Brian Spangle. “We’ve seen a great response to Shri’s message everywhere we’ve traveled, and we’re excited to bring that same progressive message directly to a much wider audience.”

The ad will be the first in a series of television ads the campaign plans to release into the New Year.

“The conversations I have every day with people on the campaign trail are really what compelled us to decide that the time was right to make this type of early investment in our message,” said Thanedar. “Michiganders want change. They are sick of establishment candidates and establishment politics. They want a Governor who is a strong leader, committed to ending corporate welfare, focused on investing in Michigan’s infrastructure and people, and one who will fight to keep the Great Lakes clean and pure.”

Thanedar immigrated to the United States in 1979 and became a proud United States citizen in 1988. For the past twenty-five years, Thanedar has run several small service businesses and created hundreds of jobs across the country.

Since announcing his candidacy on Jun. 8 2017, Thanedar has visited dozens of communities across Michigan including two trips to the Upper Peninsula. His science-based, pragmatic, commonsense approach is well received by voters who are looking for a problem-solver to make Michigan work for people once again.
