Padilla for Secretary of State Launches Campaign TV Ad
Ad highlights Alex Padilla's vision to protect voting rights, help create jobs

LOS ANGELES – The Padilla for Secretary of State campaign began its TV advertising campaign today.  The TV ad, titled ‘Anything is Possible,’ highlights Padilla’s personal story, his ability to get things done and his focus on creating jobs by making it easier to start a business.

"Anything is Possible" highlights Padilla’s focus on jobs and the economy.  The business division is the largest unit in the Secretary of State's office and is responsible for incorporations and other filings required in California.  Padilla has pledged to modernize the office of Secretary of State by allowing businesses to file online and limit processing times to no more than five business days.

Padilla has also made protection of voting rights a priority, passing legislation to strengthen the California Voting Rights Act in the State Senate (SB 1365).

Alex Padilla said:  “I'm proud of my record reaching across party lines to get things done.  As Secretary of State, I'll put that same energy and experience to work to modernize the Secretary of State's office. We can help businesses create jobs by making it easier to start a business.  ”

Rose Kapolczynski, Padilla campaign consultant said:  “Our ad underscores Alex Padilla's record of accomplishment. As more people learn about Alex, our support grows.  With voting underway, it's a great time to increase our communications with voters.

The ad will begin airing today on cable in the Los Angeles and San Francisco media markets.  To view the ad, click here.
