The host committee of the Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee released a video today touting the city’s attributes to make the beginning of the one-year countdown until the event sweeps into Wisconsin’s largest city.
A spokeswoman said the video will be spread both organically through social media along with paid distribution.
The four-minute video features a series of Wisconsin elected officials along with local business owners, Milwaukee residents and others.
It shows a series of shots of the city’s skyline, neighborhoods and festivals.
“It is the greatest city in the country,” proclaims Josh Jackson, a fourth-grade teacher in Milwaukee Public Schools and treasurer of the Milwaukee Teachers’ Education Association.
