First Official NO on 1/Protect Maine Equality Ads Hit the Airwaves - Help Keep Them on the Air!

Today, the first official ads from the NO on 1/Protect Maine Equality campaign hit Maine's airwaves.

From campaign manager Jesse Connolly: "One tells the story of Sam Putnam of Portland, who plays high school football and baseball, and is the pride and joy of his mother, Jennifer and her partner, Michelle. For Sam, it's pretty basic -- this is his family and he wants them to be valued and treated equally in Maine."

"Our second spot introduces Bill Whitten of Yarmouth, a former college football player and U.S. Marine. Bill has two daughters -- one gay and one straight. For Bill, it's simple -- he wants both his girls treated fairly and equally, and that includes marrying the person they love."

Help keep Sam's story on the air!

  1. Oh, yes, Very fine. Sent $$.

    Can we get very very similar ones for CA please!!!

  2. I personally think their second ad is much weaker than the oft-criticized "Meet the Thorons" ad that kicked off the NO on H8 campaign in California.

    Compare and contrast:

    Maine's #1 ad is closer to what Equality California has been doing since Marc Solomon assumed the lead on marriage equality issues
