Jennifer Kim's ad: Just Jennny from the block

Now we have Jennifer Kim's campaign clip, "Independent."

Funny how she's highlighting her refusal to take the council pay raise, in light of the Rick Culleton ad beating her up for approving it. (Guess no good deed goes unpunished.) Also, there's the fact it's stunts like that that impacted her working relationships on the dais, which have partially put her in this precarious position. Lastly, I'm not sure how well "I'm Jennifer Kim. I sure have screwed the pooch …" plays at the end, either. But overall, it sure looks clean and professional.
