Cop union targets de Blasio in new TV ad


The city’s largest cop union on Monday resorted to television to criticize Mayor de Blasio – kicking off a month-long major TV ad campaign pushing for higher officer pay.

The PBA-funded slots began airing today and tell the story of Jennifer, the wife of a veteran NYPD officer who opens up about the hardships of living under her husband’s current salary.

“My husband is a New York City police officer for 10 years,” Jennifer tells the audience. “Every month we pretty much struggle.”

The mother of three school-aged children with a mortgage and car payments puts the mayor directly on blast for her family’s inability to live in the city her spouse is paid to protect.

“Mayor de Blasio, I don’t think it’s fair,” she says. “He protects this city 24/7 and he has a family that he needs to support.”

The installment also points out how the NYPD lags well behind other police departments in pay.

NYPD cops on average, the ad states, make 34% less than other forces – both locally and nationally.
