Calif. group starts pro high-speed rail campaign

Posted on February 13, 2012

The California Alliance for Jobs kicked off its radio campaign in support of the high-speed rail project in Sacramento and the Bay Area. The 60-second radio spot recently began airing and is one of several ads running in the coming months that discuss the benefits of high-speed rail.

The radio spot is narrated by political satirist Will Durst who reminds Californians about the importance of having vision, creating jobs and building "something momentous for our future generation."

The radio advertisement is running several times a day on 15 stations in Sacramento and the Bay Area and was expected to reach 2.6 million people this week. To listen to the radio spot, click here.
