Kenosha casino TV campaign begins

Kenosha News Staff

The Menominee Nation is launching a new TV ad campaign urging Gov. Scott Walker to support the Kenosha casino.

A 30-second spot featuring Kenosha-area residents commenting on the project is to begin airing on Milwaukee market stations Friday night, a project spokeswoman confirmed.

The spot was filmed in Kenosha and features unscripted interviews, according to a news release from the tribe.

“As one of Wisconsin’s poorest tribes, we don’t have a lot of money to hire actors and produce a slick ad campaign, but we want people to know about the thousands of permanent jobs and multimillion-dollar economic benefits the Kenosha casino would mean for Wisconsin,” Menominee Chairman Craig Corn said in a news release.
