New York, NY – Today, Scott Stringer’s campaign released its third television ad, titled “Rebuild.” It highlights Stringer’s personal story as a native New Yorker raised in Washington Heights by a single mother whom he lost to the pandemic, his public service, and his commitment to rebuild a stronger New York City for all families. A Spanish version of the ad is narrated by Stringer’s 91-year-old stepfather, Carlos Cuevas.

Like many New Yorkers, I lost a loved one to COVID. The pandemic took the lives of far too many New Yorkers and devastated our city, but I’m determined to bring it back stronger and better than before. I’m ready to rebuild a fairer, more prosperous, and more equitable city for all New York City families,” said Comptroller Scott Stringer.

The ad will appear across cable, broadcast, and digital platforms.
