Press Release: Hansen Releases TV Ad -- First of Mayoral Race


DENVER, CO -- On Tuesday morning, a television ad from Chris Hansen’s mayoral campaign started playing on stations across Denver. The ad, which focuses on real solutions to Denver’s public safety problems and homelessness crisis, makes Hansen the first mayoral candidate of the 2023 cycle to take to the airwaves.

“Denverites deserve to feel safe in their homes, in the park, on the roads, and on the sidewalks,” Hansen said. “My administration will actually deliver results, reducing homelessness and building a highly trained and accountable public safety system that works for all of Denver.” 

The 30-second spot, titled “Band-Aid,” is running on broadcast and cable channels. The transcript, and a YouTube link to the ad, are included below.

… isn’t working. It is time for a new direction.

As an engineer, I’ve solved complex problems in the private and public sectors.

As Mayor, I’ll audit homeless programs and enforce the camping ban across the city.

And I’ll invest in highly-trained, accountable police.

I’m Chris Hansen. I have plans to solve these problems – not hide from them.
