Bech to Olver: More Gas, Less Hot Air!
23rd June 2008
Nathan Bech (R-West Springfield), candidate for the 1st congressional district in Massachusetts launches a media buy in response to this summer’s gas prices and incumbent John W. Olver’s (D- Amherst) recent Economic Issues Update: Spring 2008. “Unlike Olver, we can’t send out political propaganda at the prepared, printed and mailed at taxpayer’s expense,” explained Bech. The Bech campaign response includes an advertisement in eight newspapers around the 1st congressional district, a video of Bech’s recent visits to local gas stations, and a new gas calculator on his website.
In the wake of this summer’s record setting petroleum costs, Bech has proposed a solution with short, medium, and long term plans. According to the Bech Ad Olver’s policies save a maximum of $0.05/gal., while his own plan saves a minimum of $1.98/gal. The advertisement sent out to the newspapers can be viewed on the Blog section of Bech’s campaign website:
Bech who has been campaigning at gas stations around the district, produced a web launched video commercial challenging Olver’s record on gas prices. The response of patron’s at the pump is telling of problems Olver and the democratic congress may face this fall over high energy costs. The video can be seen on the internet at Youtube:
The gas calculator on the Bech campaign website allows campaign to imput local gas prices daily and calculates the price of gas under Olver’s policies and separately under Nathan Bech’s proposed policies. More information about Bech’s energy and gas polices are also available on the Bech website and includes drilling in ANWR, drilling off shore, building new refineries and a billion dollar tax free bonus for the first mass produced hydrogen fueled car.
