Randy Boyd’s fourth TV commercial

Press release from Randy Boyd campaign

Nashville, Tenn. – Randy Boyd, Republican candidate for Governor, launched his fourth campaign commercial “K to J” (Kindergarten to Job) which highlights Boyd’s commitment to education and better preparing students for the jobs of tomorrow.

The 30-second ad highlights Boyd interacting with students from pre-school to high school as he shares the most important academic test for parents and communities is whether our students are ready to go to work after graduation.

“We must bring back technical education to our schools and teach job-ready skills so every Tennessean has the opportunity to get the skills they need to get a great job,” says Boyd.

The statewide broadcast and cable TV buy will begin airing on Thursday, March 29. The full ad may also be viewed on YouTube here and on the campaign’s social media.

“Randy Boyd is the only candidate who has already served our state as an education leader and special advisor, and as our state’s Economic Development commissioner.  He knows we must make sure all children have the opportunity to learn and that we must make technical education and real job skills more readily available,” said Chip Saltsman, Campaign CEO. “This ad speaks directly to Randy’s experience and leadership in aligning education opportunity with growing the Tennessee economy,” said Saltsman.

As the architect of Tennessee’s Drive to 55 education and workforce development initiative, Boyd helped create the state’s Tennessee Promise and Tennessee Reconnect scholarship programs as well as founded the non-profit tnAchieves organization comprised of thousands of volunteer mentors across the state who guide students through the college process.  The Drive to 55 works to ensure every Tennessean has the opportunity to earn a college degree or technical certificate.  The goal is 55 percent holding a credential by 2025.

Earlier this month, Boyd announced a blue-ribbon team of educators, including several former Tennessee “Teacher of the Year’ from across the state, to advise him on education policy. The release may be viewed here. Boyd has also been active in launching and supporting innovative Community Schools in Knoxville to help boost the success of more low-income students.

“We believe that Randy’s message of ‘kindergarten to a great job’ speaks to two things Tennesseans care most about: education and the economy,” said Saltsman. “This ad will give them a closer look into Randy’s vision of truly making Tennessee the ‘Smartest State in the South.’”
