TOPIC:

"For this campaign we're running targeted local ads in Alabama that highlight Rocky Myer's case. Rocky is on death row right now even though he was convicted on evidence from a witness who has since recanted his testimony, sentenced to death by a judge who imposed the death sentence against the jury’s wishes (the jury wanted life without parole) & there was no evidence tying him to the scene of the crime. Our goal is to commute his sentence from death row to life without parole. We are hoping to reach Governor Kay Ivey in Alabama who is the ultimate decision maker here!"

AUDITION SCRIPT (:30) 

Governor Ivey holds in her hands—

The most powerful pen in Alabama.

A pen that made our state a place—

Where no judge can overrule a jury.

 

But Ivey’s pen left some citizens behind—

Citizens like Rocky Myers—

Whose judge overruled the jury—

And unfairly sentenced him to death.

 

It’s time for Governor Ivey to pick up her pen—

Write the next chapter of justice—

And commute Rocky’s death sentence—

Before it’s too late.

 

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: ROCKY MYERS
