ALBANY --NY Jobs Now Committee, which has gotten most of its funding from gambling companies, is out with two new statewide ads promoting Proposal One in next week's elections.
The group has raised at least $3 million the past month and it is running a campaign against anti-casino groups that have no real money to spend.
Neither television ad shows an actual image of a casino, but there are plenty of images of cooks working in a kitchen, people walking along a waterfront and pretty outdoors scenes. They also use the term "gaming,'' not "gambling.'' The ads do address a worry by some casino proponents by telling viewers they have to flip over the November 5 ballot to be able to vote on Proposal One and the other five statewide propositions.
The first ad talks of the potential job claims.
The second ad talks of some newspaper editorial support.
