WATCH: DiCiccio Begins Airing POSITIVE TV Ads In Contentious City Council Race (with Transcript); Ad Buy 1/4 Of Fire Fighters' Opposing Ad

Phoenix City Councilmember Sal DiCiccio began airing his first re-election television ad today, and - notwithstanding the negative tone of the campaign and the currently-airing fire fighters' union's ads opposing him - DiCiccio's ad is conspicuously positive.

The ad is a straightforward recitation of what DiCiccio considers to be his greatest accomplishments during his tenure on the Council.  The transcript (as transcibed by Arizona's Politics) is below.

Documents filed by KPNX (Channel 12) with the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) indicate that the total market ad buy will be for $64,250.  That is almost exactly one-fourth the size of the ad buy by Phoenix Truth and Safety ($231,000).

Early voting began yesterday, and the ads are scheduled to run up to Election Day on August 27.
