Advertising Campaign To Fight Drilling Ban

Monday, July 26, 2010

A new organization composed of Louisiana businesses, organizations and individuals -- Gulf Citizens United (GCU) -- has been formed to raise a unified voice against the oil drilling moratorium on the Gulf Coast.  Specifically, GCU has been created “for the purpose of furthering the common good and general welfare of the gulf coast community as a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing attention to the economic hardships associated with the oil and gas drilling moratorium and working toward its cessation.”

GCU has mounted an advertising campaign on Capitol Hill aimed at lawmakers to underscore the severe economic consequences of the drilling ban proposed by the Obama Administration.  Running several half-page ads in Capitol Hill publications the week of July 26, the GCU ad headline says, “The Ban on Offshore Drilling is a Ban on American Jobs!”  It notes a recent Bloomberg national poll that found 75% of Americans are opposed to the ban.
