In his third and final TV ad, mayoral candidate Richard Skorman says he’s the “clear choice” for mayor and that voters shouldn’t give developers the keys to City Hall, a message he’s hammered throughout the campaign trail.
Campaign spokeswoman Camille Blakely said the ad will start airing tonight through May 17, which is Election Day.
In the ad, Skorman totally looks the part, appearing in a suit and tie while sitting in a fancy office in what appears to be the Plaza of the Rockies.
“You have a clear choice for strong mayor,” Skorman says in the ad.

“I can bring lasting change to this city because I’ve already done it before,” he says, referring to the Trails Open Space and Parks initiative, as the camera scans one of the city’s open spaces with snow-capped Pikes Peak in the background.
“I’ll make City Hall more efficient, but I won’t compromise public safety,” says Skorman, who has been endorsed by the Colorado Springs Police Protective Association and the Colorado Springs Professional Firefighters Association.
“I’ll help grow local businesses and recruit new ones to add needed jobs,” he says.
“We shouldn’t give developers the keys to City Hall because they’ve had too much influence for too long,” he says.
“Join me in making Colorado Springs better for all of us. Vote Skorman for a real change.”
