Moseley Braun Campaign Releases First Behind the Scenes Video: "On the Issues, In Every Neighborhood"
January 29, 2011 -‐ -- The Carol Moseley Braun campaign today released a new video called “On The Issues, In Every Neighborhood”. The video is a behind the scenes look at what makes the campaign tick. From the beginning, Moseley-Braun’s mayoral campaign has sought to be inclusive and represents all Chicagoans in every neighborhood.
“We may be a financially poor campaign, but we have a rich message," Moseley Braun said. “This video is another way I am reaching out to voters. It shows me on the campaign trail, talking the issues, and in the neighborhoods. Voters have a clear choice when they go to the polls on February 22nd. They can vote for me, someone who understands their struggles and knows how to solve them, or for one of the other candidates who see public office as a way to line their own pockets.”
“The way for the city to balance its budget is with an economy that is growing. Entrepreneurs are the key to balancing our budget and creating prosperity for the middle class. Under my administration, the city will stand with entrepreneurs and not with the bureaucrats.”
Lift the regulatory barriers on home-based businesses. Home-based businesses should be allowed to employ up to four people, not just one, and permitted to create products (like greeting cards or stuffed animals or jewelry or crafts) unless it creates a nuisance for neighbors. Ordinances that currently prohibit them from making any products in the home that aren’t sold at retail should be repealed. Allow home-based businesses to sell their products to anyone, including resellers or online, and abolish the ordinance that restricts their ability to sell their products. Allow home-based businesses to display their products to customers as they see fit, and abolish the city ordinance that prohibits them from displaying products on shelves or racks.
The entire video is online now at www.youtube.com. The campaign plans to release several more videos before next month’s election.
