The ad focuses on Hansen’s plan for ensuring that Denver’s $250,000,000 budget for homelessness services is achieving results, a top priority for Denverites.“It is clear that Denver’s current approach to addressing homelessness isn’t working,” Hansen said. “$250 million is a transformative amount of money if it’s spent effectively – but the current programs clearly aren’t getting enough results. We need new leadership with fresh energy to ensure that those who are unhoused are supported to move off the street and get into housing.”In the legislature, State Senator Chris Hansen appropriated millions of dollars for Denver to address its homelessness crisis and its affordable housing crisis. Now, he’s running for Mayor to make sure results are being delivered to Denver. The 30-second spot, titled “$250 Million,” is running on broadcast and cable channels in Denver. The transcript, and a YouTube link to the ad, are included below.Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I-g50Fg1oaETranscript: Hansen: 250 million dollars.[Hansen in front of a whiteboard]Hansen: That is what Denver will spend on the homelessness crisis this year.And the problem keeps getting worse.[A headline from Denver 7 showing that Denver’s homeless population continues to grow]Hansen: We have to do better!
