Launches Targeted Digital Ads to Supplement Comprehensive Grassroots Efforts
HARRISBURG, Pa – Americans for Prosperity-Pennsylvania (AFP-PA) today announced an additional layer of its robust engagement ahead of Tuesday, May 18th, 2021’s primary ballot. This final push adds to the grassroots organization’s #FinalSayPA campaign urging voters to get-out-and-vote YES on ballot questions 1, 2, and 3 next month.
AFP-PA State Director Ashley Klingensmith issued the following statement:
“A decision with the magnitude of issuing a statewide, emergency declaration that impacts our lives and livelihoods on such a personal level should not be unilaterally determined by a single government official with limited exposure to the perspectives of millions of Pennsylvanians. Instead, these decisions should include the voices of all Pennsylvanians through their elected representatives in Harrisburg to ensure a holistic perspective is driving these decisions. What’s most important is that Pennsylvanians come together to pave a path forward for families, small business owners, and our economy. We look forward to seeing Pennsylvanian voters from Philadelphia to Pittsburgh and Scranton to Erie vote ‘YES’ on ballot questions one, two, and three on Tuesday, May 18th.”
Background on AFP-PA’s Campaign:
Passage of the ballot questions concerning the governor’s emergency powers will add state elected officials to the disaster declaration decision making process by giving the General Assembly the ability to extend or terminate the declaration to ensure that the voices of Pennsylvanians are heard. It will also shorten the duration of declaration from 90 to 21 days to make responses more adaptive as situations rapidly develop.
The full weight of the grassroots group’s permanent infrastructure has been placed behind the campaign. Activists across the Keystone State are engaging in citizen-to-citizen contact including, door knocks, educational events, and phone banking. These efforts are further supplemented by the digital toolkit, online educational resources, and voter pledge.
