General Electric Co. announced Wednesday that it is relocating its headquarters from Connecticut to Boston. As a result, the State of Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development quickly produced several TV and radio commercials to attract businesses and individuals to the Nutmeg State.
The commercials are produced by Landry, Issel and Escalanté, a consulting firm located in the historic section of Forestville.
The script for one of the commercials is as follows:
Are you considering a move? Then consider the state of Connecticut!
The state of Connecticut has a great moderate climate, four seasons and plenty of hills, all complimentary.
Sure, other states may brag about highway projects that finish within one generation, lower gasoline taxes, and less regulation, but Connecticut is the only state in the tri-state area with four vowels in its name!
So while other states may have better schools, reduced liability costs, and lower taxes. And while other states may have shorter names and less vowels, the state of Connecticut offers you a great view of trees. Did we mention that the leaves change color in the fall too?
So come to Connecticut the gateway to Boston and New York City!
Who wouldn’t come based on that?
Connecticut is one of the original 13 colonies and has 169 incorporated towns. It is located on the east coast of the United States and has cold winters and warm humid summers.
