Herbst’s First TV Ad in CT-Gov. Race: “Let’s Clean House”

Herbst’s First TV Ad in CT-Gov. Race: “Let’s Clean House”

The former first selectman of Trumbull touts his record leading the town, and his pledge to "clean house," in his first TV ad of his gubernatorial campaign.

First Selectman Tim Herbst (R-Trumbull) is joining several of his fellow Republican candidates for governor on air this week, launching a new ad Monday that highlights his record leading the town of Trumbull for eight years.

“In Trumbull, I reformed a broken pension system,” Herbst says. “Eight balanced budgets and two tax cuts later, Trumbull is thriving.”

Herbst pledges in the ad to end pensions for politicians and reduce the state’s debt, before concluding: “let’s clean house.”

Party-endorsed Mayor Mark Boughton (R-Danbury) released his first ad of the campaign last week. Businessmen Bob Stefanowski and David Stemerman, who are self-funding their campaigns for governor, have been on the air for awhile. Steve Obsitnik is the only Republican gubernatorial candidate who has yet to release a television ad.
